    Hi,

    I have a ruark dialogue centre speaker for use with an 8ft projection screen.

    The wall that they are on is clean and clutter free.

    what I want to know is, should the speaker be as close to the bottom of the screen as possible or is there any reason why I can't put it on the floor and have it pointing upwards towards the listenening position.

    Also, rayleigh hifi in chelmsford said I could use two of my existing spare m+k K4 satellites either aide of the screen but wired in mono. I was against this as something just doesn't seem right about having a speaker either side, but he was adamant the sound would be as if it were coming from the whole of the screen centred around the centre line.

    any thoughts?

    Ideally you want the centre speaker in line with your ears when you sit at the listening position. The same applies for the left and right speakers.
