following on from the 'placing speakers on there side' thread where me and chris_av took the thread of topic discussing the advanages/reasons for all/most driver configurations being the same, ie tweeters at the top and drivers below. so what are peoples thoughts on this subject? we already have agreed that tweeters are more 'directional' than woofers, and also the fact that if woofers were at the top then balance/stabilty would be an plausable reason. and then there s the case of fashion, all speakers seem to be of this design nowadays, although it has been mentioned that mission have made speakers in the past with woofers at the top and they were very good speakers too. so is it just fashionable to have the tweeter at the top? or is it actualy to do with the sound dispersion or another clever reason that i am failing to discover..... oppinions apreciated andy just realised tthat the q acoustics 1050i have a woofer-tweeter-woofer arangement, can anybody tell me the benefits of this please???
