I finally have the GHH in the corners but they are close to the wall and are slightly boomy. What is the minimum distance from the corner walls? Thanks

Hey H69, I somehow missed your post. Think of the left speaker. Push it into corner fully so that back and side touch wall. Slide it a few inches down the back wall and angle to the center of room. The side wall  and the opening form "the rest of the mouth". This is a good starting point but as always experiment!

H69, prune Ed´s answer down to just one word: "Experiment".
The Horns shouldn´t be boomy, but I guess they do helluvalot of bass if your room allows them to.

Move just one away from the corner, inch by inch.
If there´s no difference, put it back to where it was and try the other one.

I've read the term "boomy" used a lot in the hifi forums but I have never had it demonstrated for me.  Can some of you tell me how it sounds? 

I've read "flabby" and "mushy" and I think I get those meanings but I'm not clear on "boomy".

Boomy sound must have bass but bass doesn't have to sound boomy.

So when do you determine that it is boomy?
