    Default 5.1 surround speaker height

    OK...which is it?

    Tweeters at ear-level?

    Tweeters 2 to 3 feet above ear level?

    Does it make a difference if you're using "regular" speakers (like a RTi4) or "dipoles" (like the FXi3)?

    Where can I buy a 7-foot speaker stand? :D

    Wall-mounting is not an option for me :(

    Mike_C - I mounted the OWM5's from the ceiling during my turn with the demo speakers. It's not listed in the manual as one of the nine mounting options, but it worked very well. I also have too little wall space for larger wall mounted speakers. I tried six different Polk speaker styles and ended up with Mirage OMD5 omnipolar's.
