I currently have some stand mounts for my surrounds (5.1) and I'm looking to go on-wall so I can have them mounted above my listening area. They can only go on the back wall so in this case would a pair of MP150 or S150T work better?
I will be installing my SW150s into a new wall soon... if any of you would be kind enough to offer any advice, I would really appreciate it, - I have created a thread here with my plans: http://www.avforums.com/forums/home...y-set-up-lots-advice-needed.html#post18830691
My last post doesn't apply to SW150's as the dispersion characteristics are quite different between the 2 speakers
I would if poss try to mount them at ear height if possible but it isn't as critical to have then toed in to the listening position
Cheers Allan. TBH, i'm completely baffled as to where to fit the speakers LCR all in one height seems to be favourable, centre on top of tv too high, centre below too near floor, - if i have LCR all at same height they'll all be too high or too low.
So what you're saying is have the centre either above or below, and the L & R at ear height, - so I wont have the benefit of having them all the same height?
I believe I have a fair amount of flexibility with my room, - the only thing causing the problems is the size of my plasma - if you have the time, I would appreciate any comments you might have on the thread i've created - link above, - no worries if not
This is my proposed room
Sessen Ryu said:Yeah, eyes do go up, it's a good point. Cheers Rich. For me personally, I would not like my screen quite as high as that, i'm of the opinion that the screen isn't a picture, and I find viewing more immersive when the screen is around eye level.
I would like to keep the LCR at the same height if possible, and I am concerned about reflections from my wooden floor. The dialogue from my centre speaker in the past always carried more clarity when placed at the top of the telly rather than the bottom.
What I think I will do tomorrow, if i get the time, is to arrange the speakers as near to proposed positions and see if it makes any difference.
What I have proposed, does look a little wrong however, it keeps the screen at an immersive level, it keeps the LCR at the same level, it keeps the speakers away from the floor, and as they're in-walls, placement isn't as critical, - that,'s my reasoning anyway
That looks totally wrong. Your eyes naturally look up when sitting on a sofa. so move the screen up.

Hello sir did you get your speakers up yet? Waiting for you thoughts
