When the 2nd violins are in their place (ha) next to the firsts, they don't encounter the same problems of not enough bow space, and the inability to hear themselves because their instruments are up near their ears and their bows are more vertical than ours. Naturally, violinists just take less space than cellists. My experience (too recently) with Wrong Seating No. 2 was that it was nearly impossible for us to hear ourselves and we had no bow space whatsoever. I have played 2nd violin from time to time and have never experienced this problem.
..oooor....maybe I just like to have something to complain about! : )
