    Hi,

    I want to move my 5.1 centre speaker from balancing on top of the TV
    to inside the TV cabinet, However I would have to have it quite close to the floor about 4" from the bottom of the speaker to the bottom of the floor.Is this too low? and if so would it have an adverse effect upon the sound quality?

    Merry Xmass :clap:

    IMO, the centre speaker sounds better below the TV like in the cinema

    I'd imagine it would be somewhat more of a problem with a hard, reflective floor...

    It would be better just under the TV, but if you dont have anything between the seaker and the listening position and point it a bit upwards it should be better than over the TV...

    By the way, if it has a back port and the cabinet is closed you might get ressonances...

    Hi Lowrider,

    Ok maybe I can think of a way to raise it a little and or point it at an angle?
    What do you mean by "back port" mate? cabinet is one that came with TV so it has lots of "gaps" in it that allow you to thread speaker and power cables through.

    Back port is a "hole" in the back of the speaker to increase bass... It will ressonate in a closed shelf...
