Yup. The front, back, and bottom are square, and the top slopes down at an angle of approx. 7.5° from horizontal.

Just don't attempt to measure the exact angle, or your center channel will fall to the floor.

It's a fact.

No need to measure exactly. The front height is about 9.16", the rear height is about 7.12", and the speaker depth is about 16.36". I leave the trigonometry to the reader. \:\)

Well, given those numbers, the angle is about 7.11°.

I better run home to make sure my center is still in place.

The non-hard front corners aren't taken into account with the given dimensions. The front height would actually be larger if the top and front came to a point like they do in the rear.

Of course as I read that, I formed a diagram in my head to figure out the angles and distances of the missing triangle of space, all I need is the length of the beveled edge.

What do non-geeks do to kill time?

No no, don't worry, we all do trig problems in our heads just for fun, you guys are not alone.

In fact last night at the sports bar I was at watching LeBron get his ass kicked all over the court, drinking beers with my buddies, flirting with the waitresses and what not, I was figuring out approach vortex's, and arch curve logorithms in my head the entire time.






(Ok, you got me... I probably don't even know the correct terms to use to even ACT like a geek do I? Why can't I be cool like you guys?)
