    Default Install in-wall center speaker above or below Plasma HDTV?

    I'm ready to install a 50" plasma HDTV with Polk in-wall left, right, and center channel speakers; plasma will hang on the wall (as opposed to being on a stand), so I'm looking for a real clean look; speaker cables and power cord are hidden in wall too. Height of plasma will be at eye level when sitting on a couch (~ 28" from floor to bottom of plasma). The left and right in-wall speakers will be located slightly below the ht of the bottom of the plasma.

    My question is whether the in-wall center channel should be installed above or below the plasma? Also is your answer based on sound quality, aesthetics or both? Thanks much!

    That seems kind of low for the L and R, but if you do chose that ht I'd put the center below and aim all the tweeters up just a bit to ear level.
    I'm doing something similar but placing my 42" plasma on a 24" stand. I figure the top of the TV will be at around 48" and I'll be installing the L/R/C at the same ht, with the bottom of each speaker at around 50". Then I'll point the tweeters down towards ear level.
