What speaker distance and height should I use for my speaker set up?

Filed under: AV question — Tags: , , — Alan @ 7:53 am

Q. What should the speaker distance be between the two front speakers in a stereo or home theater system, as well as between the two surround speakers? I also want to know at what height I should mount my surrounds? Thanks. — Adi N.

A. Start by separating your front left and right speakers by about half the distance that you sit from the speakers. If you sit 12 feet back, separate the front left and right speakers by about 6 feet. You can vary this formula quite a bit. At 12 feet, I’d try anything between 5 and 8 feet.

HDTV Resolution and Pixel Count?

Filed under: AV question — Tags: — Alan @ 3:04 pm

Q. Regarding Alan Lofft’s column entitled “Standard or High Definition: It’s All in the Pixel Count,” if I have a Samsung DLP HDTV that has a native resolution of 1280 x 720p and I’m watching HDNet, which uses a 1080i signal, there is no way I’m going to get the number of pixels that come with that 1920 x 1080i format . . . right? The native resolution on a set is the maximum number of pixels that can possibly be displayed? Also, do the 720p and 1080i figures refer to the horizontal or vertical number lines? Thanks for answering my questions on pixel count.
