    ive been trying to work this out so much...but no way anything i do can i get even 3ft between my mons if i get them. i was gonna get the wharfedale 8.2A, but then realised their size would mean even less space between, and they would pretty much be too big for the space i have. so i cant even get the right ones i want cos i dont have enough fucking room. and then im told that i need decent cables to go with them, which i cant even get hold of in the UK. should i just scrap the whole idea and go with some AKG K271 headphones as monitors!?

    While those headphones are nice, they wont do the job of mons.

    yeah, but the thing is there is no room whatsoever, stands make no difference, i do not have anymore than that width. i suppose i could put them on the wall behind me, but most of that is a window, so then they would probably be too far apart. and...behind me:S

    cos the radiator is also there, which is no good to have my comp against, and my bed is against that wall, and wont fit against the wall where all my equipment is.

    Ok, then why dont you put the computer on the floor under the desk, monitor (screen) infront of you, and mount the mons to the wall, from l brackets, using auraxles wedgies behind it to reduce any rumble?

    well, that was my plan, but it still doesnt give me 3ft, cos the wardobe is one side and the edge of the door the other, so even shelves wont give me enough room. also my mic stand gets in the way, as beside the desk is the only place for that to go.

    when you record in an 8x10 room that just happens to have the rest of your living arangement in it, everything is infront of the computer...and next to the door, and ontop of the bed, and in the windowsill, beside the fridge and touching at least three out of four walls...

    ^exactly. my room is bigger than 8 x 10, but like i said its the masive wardrobe that stops me from having any wall space whatsoever. i could record out in the hall, but i dont see the point when i would have to go through the door to press record, rather than just bend down and do it. when ure whole family lives in a house it aint easy to leave stuff anywhere other than safe places in ure bedroom.

    i dont understand how u can have room for a mic to record..and a computer to sit at...and that ain 3 feet of space lol.. less ur on a laptop and ur mic hangs from the ceiling in the closet or sum shit.. but duke.. u dont have to have ur monitors right by ur set up... shit.. run cables across the room if u have to... if its a small room like u portrayin it to be, it shouldnt be too much of a hassel to hit play then slide to the other side of the room via chair wit wheels to listen lol

    If you can't possibly do anything to get the mons to be 3 feet apart then u need to mix somewhere else.

    u can afford monitors..but not the 30 dollar cables? get some limewires... theyre decent, and cheap.. itll work til u get up the dough for better shit


    i really jus think ur not trying to make the situation work for urself for sum reason, seriously, u must either have tons of unneeded shit in ur room, or a 2x2 box... cuz my room is about 10x8 with both doors opening inward into the room, a queen sized bed, entertainment center, corner desk, and dresser, and i can still get my mic stand in, with room to spit, and my monitors 3' apart
