Wife Acceptance Factor. No links, whatsoever.

Ok this is hte third time I've tried replying... They don't seem to be showing up for me, I hope this isn't just a bug on my side.

I checked with dad and I can mount them on the ceiling, they just have to be screwed into the rafters with a board. So bearing that in mind, where should I put them? There's a rafter on either side of the couch (you can see the left one in the picture, go straight up from the arm of the couch, then to the left abit). Should I use those rafters? or go out further one more?.

Also should I put the right speaker all thee way in the corner? In case someone sits on my bed? This will be farther over then my right front main (as I don't wan to put that right in the corner, because it'll be blocked by my bed...

Or is it better to mount it on the wall and put the other one on the 36" stand on the left? I got the impression that putting those speakers that close to ear level may be realy loud?

What do you guys think?

- D

thoughts?

I just looked into it some more, and doing the "one speaker on the wall, other on a stand" method does not work, because to put them both at 3 feet off the ground, It'd definetley smack it when I'm sleeping in the bed

If you guys say that having them to the side is better then on the back wall, then I think ceiling mount is going to be our best option.

Now, where on the ceiling should they go?

Sean, put them on the back wall about 6' up and separated as widely as possible, maybe 6" from the side wall or where a side wall would be.

I certainly wouldn't question your advice, John, but why have him put 'em on the back wall? Sorry if I just questioned your advice.

Mark, sitting right up against the back wall, putting the surrounds on that wall and spread almost all the way to the side walls is at least as good as using the side walls almost all the way to the back wall. Also, note that Sean doesn't have a side wall on the left.

Hell, we don't even know if he's a HE. For all we know, JohnK could be a computer program.
