Hello all,

What is the optimum height of the speakers in a home cinema setup? At the moment the fronts are level with the height of the tv and the rears just slightly above ear level with the centre placed under the tv.

Thanks,

James :)
 
The optimum height of front speakers in an AV setup are similar to hifi and should be at ear height when seated. Centre speakers are never quite so easy to position as ear height is normally in the centre of the TV so directly above or directly below are the obvious options.

Rears can vary depending on the type of speakers and the shape of the room but most seem to have them much higher than the fronts and perhaps angled down and across the seating position a little
