It may be alittle late in the game, with all the literature and posts that have been written, to standardize this term or concept. But are there an thoughts to how to clarify front wall back wall.

There seems to be great confusion, and causes great confusion every time front/back wall is mentioned.

this is a speakersĀ“s conspiracy claiming that the wall behind them is the "back" wall. But is not.

(Is tomate here) ...

Stage Left

Same confusion when viewing stage plots for live performance.
Some draw the plans as seen from the audience and FOH mixer.
Others use the performers (stage) view. So Stage Left is audience right.
Presuming diagrams are read vertically, maybe North Wall would be useful.

Fire exits

In a fire, every second counts. What if your in a theater and they say exit from the rear doors.......whose rear??? By time it's explained or understood, your burnt to a crisp.

Would you like cheese on those fries?



On to my SBIR issue.

The front wall of a room is the wall you face while listening. People who call that the rear wall because it's behind their speakers are confused.

I am pretty amazed how many times, on the phone, I have to explain the front and back thing. Seems pretty easy to me.

South Facing

Houses advertised as South Facing.....
That means the front is South Facing. That means no sunlight in the kitchen or back garden, .....ever.
Some poeple are dylexics.

If I did then it was a major typo. Behind the speakers is the front wall. Behind the engineer is the back wall.
Look at the following set up. The right is the front and the left is the back.

Both reasonings for back or front wall make sense. But I think this one makes more sense.


Front wall it is.........

or was that lampshade?
