The M3's have a slightly different tone than the 5.25" woofered M2, M22. As CatBrat mentioned the M2 is the better match.

Are you talking about an on wall M22 and tilting that upward? If so the only way would be to build that section of the wall where the center will be mounted at the desired angle. The onwalls are meant to be mounted flat to the wall. This is the dilemma, lack of flexibilty of placement/mounting, when going with these aesthetically pleasing speakers over standard boxes.

Hello,
I'm O.K. using the M2 with the mid-woofer section that low to the ground, assuming I can modify the installation to allow the tilting of the speaker upwards? I would even use the M22 but the bottom of the speaker would almost be at the floor. I know you want the tweeters as close to ear level as possible and at the same time all of the tweeters (LCR) at the same level or as close as possible. I have the ability to adjust the speaker elevation of the L / R speakers.
Thank you for your advice / opinion.
Tony

The only way you're going to be able to tilt the speakers is to build a special, tilting section of wall.

Yes, you would want to have that section angled up. I would run a string from the mounting position of the tweeter to the main listening position (ear level) and then you can calculate the amount the bottom mounting area will need to be out from the wall to achieve a right angle where the string is.

It is not super critical to have all the tweeters at the same level, I think it does sound a little better but I have also had my center channel a few inches down from the ceiling angled down to the listening position and it sounded great too. Here are a couple of pics from my old house with M22's as mains then with M80's

Mark, since those posts are still up as of this time, possibly one of the moderators has an an interest in cheap wallets, handbags and purses.

I just found the "delete post" command. Note, however, that I think everyone should appreciate the appearance of a nice cheap vinyl wallet, preferably in Boston Cherry or Light Maple!

Cheers,
Alan
