If wall mounting 150's please pay attention to making sure they are angled directly towards the listening area and preferably your ears.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?
My last post doesn't apply to SW150's as the dispersion characteristics are quite different between the 2 speakersI 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-cinema-buying-setup-general-advice-information/1764062-my-set-up-lots-advice-needed.html#post18830691
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.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
all I'm saying is, you have to do what's available to you and if your room dictates that that is the only option then you have to do itCheers Allan.

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?
Do you already have the speakers?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
I agree with this,I prefer/find it more comfortable to look up rather than look down while relaxing on the sofa,the speakers would look much better running in a line below the screen tooThat 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 thoughtsjason shep said:I agree with this,I prefer/find it more comfortable to look up rather than look down while relaxing on the sofa,the speakers would look much better running in a line below the screen too
Got them installed yesterday,they are only about 20mm deeper than the mk1's but that's enough to make it necessary to move my screen out to accommodate the extra depth,which is next weekends job.Hello sir did you get your speakers up yet? Waiting for you thoughts
I forgot about the K9 Chris,I dare say putting the centre above will be fine as long as it looks ok ?Yeah they are at a dog friendly height, can't really take the risk of having them too low unfortunately as she is rather "bouncy" at times! The instructions seem to suggest all at one height or the centre over the screen so it's a possibility. I could just drill some holes and see what I think, I'm not sure it will go down very well if I change my mind though.
They sound good, different rather than worlds apart from the XTZ's because of how good the ribbon tweeter's are. The 2510's are definitely a step up but being in a smaller room obviously impacts how they sound and I won't be getting the best out of the MP150's from my Arcam AVR350.
