    Hi

    I'm just about to mount a pair of SS150 THX Tripole Mk2's on the wall.
    The manual refers to directional arrows on the back of the speakers, there are non.
    Are they unique to Mk1's or should the Mk2's have them as well?
    If they should be on the back, is their another way to figure out the correct orientation?
    Any help will be appreciated.

    Cheers

    The MKII's had the directional arrows as well.

    If you can have a look at some online pics, the direction of the terminals should help.

    No they won't help. Hang on and I'll see if I can suss it out for you.

    Another alternative is, don't worry about it too much ;)

    If you look on the rear of the speakers, they are labelled left and right. Theyre labelled from the perspective of the listening position. As youre looking at the screen, the one labelled right goes to your right and so on. You dont need to worry about the arrows then.

    In-phase driver points to front speakers, out of phase to back wall without stickers you will need to work out which is which, if you are really struggling let me know and I will look back on an old thread which gives you a sure fire way of telling by using a battery test from one of the designers of the speakers

    I be thankful if you could dig out that battery test mate.
    I've got no arrow indication or left/right indication on the SS150's
    I got a pair of CS29 Columns at the back marked with arrow stickers, so somebody must of taken them of the SS150's
