General audio topics that don't fit into specific categories.

4 other things to try

a) Did this system sound 'correct' in a different location? ie, did you just move to this house, or move it to this room? If so, the problem is likely the room. If not, did you checking speaker wiring for correct phase?

Get dollies with castors to help you move the speakers around easily, and use long cheap flexible speaker wire, so you can leave the system powered and playing as you move the speakers.

b) Try moving the speakers by 45 degrees, just to try it out. ie 1 speaker on short wall, one on long wall, firing along a sort of diagonal.

c) Try moving the speakers into 2 corners.

d) Try using just 1 speaker, and move it around. Bass from one might be cancelling out the other.

The goal is to see if you can get the speakers to sound normal in *some* location. If so, location tuning might. Otherwise, you will likely have to resort to bass trapping to prevent bass cancellation.
