Interesting discussion as I have 3 BM-15A´s. They are soffit mounted without any isolation or finish yet. They can be moved horizontally +-120cm. without change of distance or angle to listening position.
There are bass traps in all corners & soffit.
Treble in dynaudios was piercing & hurting mine ears.
Then one day I was reading (I hope I may Mr. Bob Katz.):
"The three K-System meter scales are named K-20, K-14, and K-12. The K-20 meter is intended for wide dynamic range material, e.g., large theatre mixes, "daring home theatre" mixes, audiophile music, classical (symphonic) music, "audiophile" pop music mixed in 5.1 surround, and so on. The K-14 meter is for the vast majority of moderately-compressed high-fidelity productions intended for home listening (e.g. some home theatre, pop, folk, and rock music). And the K-12 meter is for productions to be dedicated for broadcast."
.................................& since then. After 6 years of moving & adjusting various settings. Ad libitum. ….
…Moving monitor controller ~ 14db up & daw analog in, out & insert levels down to ~ -18db = 0db cured everything.
These speakers have Danish type (TC) top that can musically open very high top. They, like another 4 1030A genelec´s, really like monitor level knob at 01:30 – 02:00 & nice, -20-12db of what ever kind signal from daw.
Hope someone will make sense of it.
