    It just goes to show that you don’t need to have a huge room to handle an ultimate system, when it’s set up properly. I bet it sounds amazing!

    When I saw the pics I was thinking the exact opposite. I'm sure Mike can vouch for the sound but I would think that more space would allow it to breathe better. You only have whatever space is available though.

    The speakers multiple adjustment points make them adapt to 14 x 14 or larger spaces. This room is 16 x 18 and sounds wonderful.

    I am sure that the system gets great sound and unlikely anyone would complain. I sure wouldn't. I do agree with you that in most instances a large room will usually maximize the SQ. A large room you just get more placement options.

    true. but handle and optimize are two different things. handle means conform to, optimize means fully engaged.

    there is no replacement for displacement.

    I'm a bit confused. I thought the customer already had 9011's? Or did he have 9007's earlier?

    Re: MBL 101 XTreme Reference Install

    Mike,
    Do the MBL 101E MkII speakers have similar adjustability options? What would be the minimum and optimal room size for them?
    Thanks,
    Anshul
