    Default tc80i in ceiling mounting position

    When mounting the tc80i in ceiling speakers as surrounds,should I turn one 180 degrees to keep the tweeters on the same side due to the offset of the tweeter? I think I will but I just ordered them and don't have them yet to see if there is a difference.

    You want to orientate the speakers so that you can point your tweeters towards the listening area (main listening position). Base is unidirectional but tweeters need to be focused.

    Go online and pull up the user manual, it should answer your query.
    If you can't hear a difference, don't waste your money.

    The manual says nothing about rotation so I guess as long as I mount them tweeters up or tweeters down I should be fine....IThey are mounted in an angled ceiling to be used as side surrounds l will play with them and post my results Thanks...
