Genelec 8040 Placement & Settings

Hello Folks,

I did treat my room with Auralex Traps And Foam as you can see in the pic attached ....

Now I am about to place my monitors .. I got a decent pair of Gelenecs 8040s

My questions are:

1: where should i place them according to the picture provided .... the room width is 197 cm ....(the front wall that you can see) ... how far from the wall from behind and from the left and right ... I Know that I should have an equilateral triangle ... but what about the placing ? behind the bass traps ? the pyramid foam? on stands ?? with Mopads?

Thank you

You should check with your acoustics vendor. Reputable acoustics companies will help guide you through this process.

That said, our general room setup strategy is laid out here:

One important question, would any monitor stands do the job for my genelec 8040s or should i buy some mopads and put them underneath the monitor on the stand ?

That stands should be fine. If you want to check then while you are playing music have a friend lift the speaker just of the stand. If you can't hear a difference then you should be fine.
