Height of rear speakers - FXi30
I just got a pair of FXi30s for my home theatre. I am going to be installing them on the rear wall of the room. I was planning on making them about two feet taller than the couch to make sure the sound will be distributed equally. However I am curious as to whether anyone would suggest me placing them in a different location? I have an Onkyo TX-DS696 that is pushing my system. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Should a CSi30 be my next move?
I finished building and installing my shelves today; got to love the extra time off of work for the holidays :) The speakers are located on the back wall behind the couch just like Soccerplyr's set up. I have made them 2.25' above head level. I was planning to make them 3' but my wife who will also be enjoying the set up is bit shorter than I am; so I had to compensate for that. I will be hooking the whole system up this weekend, and will have the FXs set at Bipolar to begin with.
I am slowly upgrading my system. The next piece I am looking to get this month is the Polk center channel CSi30. I am hoping this will be a nice addition to my current system. I have old Sony mains and center that can use some updating. The mains are still quite nice, so they will be my last upgrade. My current Sony center is definitely lacking to any center speaker currently on the market. Let me know any feelings on adding the CSi30 to my current set up, or if I should look for a different one. Thanks for all the help!!
