Here’s your step-by-step guide to the Phantom Speaker test.
- Find the best possible position for your speakers in your room to minimize reflection effects.
- Find the exact distance to your speakers that gives you the richest, most balanced sound.
- Get a stereo image as if you are working on headphones.
“My center image is WAY more 3D in this new position– I feel like I could reach out and touch the center vocals.” – Ben J.
“I can’t tell you how much it has improved the accuracy of my listening environment and even got a lot more bass from a pair of monitors who I initially thought had really lacking low-end!” – Roy O.
“I really took my time to find the phantom speaker and it pretty much scared me when I found it, lol, it was like someone was screaming right into my face from an invisible speaker, you really know what you are talking about.” – John G.
“I was just a bit too deep in the room. Also, my speaker height was a little low, and my equilateral triangle setup was a little wide. Tweaking those three things really tightened up the low end, along with my imaging. It was crazy, all the sudden the reference track felt deeper and really focused.” – Shane G.
“There was probably a 90% percent improvement. The phantom center is cleaner, I can determine where the instruments are in the stereo image now and overall improvement in the frequency range! It’s not just a huge blob of sound like before!” – Roy M.
