    Default where to install speakers on the wall??

    Ok i asked this question but only got one response, which is great but now i have read other posts where the rears position being at ear level or just above wasnt good?? My rears are just about right at ear level or a few inches up and when i sit on my couch in the center of the rears they are about 6 feet or so away on each side so should these be higher or stay where there at? Let me know so i can make some changes or not. Thanks

    It depends. Near ear-level gives you a more direct sound and 6ft up gives a more diffuse sound. If you sit against the back wall of your room, try facing them against the back wall at a 45 degree angle. This works best for me because mine are a little over ear-level and I sit against the back wall. The best thing for you to do is experiment because room acoustics plays a major role on how your surrounds will sound. If you don't like the direct sound but can't mount the speakers at least 6 ft, try laying them on their backs facing the ceiling. I tried that and it wasn't too bad.

    Yep, you got it! Raise them to 6ft from the floor. This set up usually gives you the best sound with direct-radiating surrounds. At 6ft high, they should be facing eachothe with the sound radiating right above your head. I tried this set-up before and it really makes you feel like you're in a large theater. Try it and tell us what you think.
