    It's virtually impossible for me to get my front mains at ear level. Right now they're mounted to the wall about 7" from the ground angled toward the listening position and completely parallel with the wall.What would be the best option? I was thinking maybe to turn them horizontal and angle them down?Any feed back would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    I meant to say 7' from the ground. Sorry about that.

    I would not turn them sideways.

    I'm guessing that means that I should just keep them where they are?

    Placing speakers in a horizontal position usually doesn't work out very well. They were designed to sit up-right. You could try angling them down and in towards the sweet spot a bit if you can. But 7' is pretty high up.

    What would be the best way to angle them down? I've heard people using triangular door stops? Does this work well?

    How large are the speakers? How are they mounted now? There must be some way to do it.

    They are mounted on swivel brackets that are screwed to my wall. There is a pivoting tweeter, but the speakers are about 7 feet from the ground. I was thinking of turning them horizontal and aiming the tweeter towards the listening position. They're indoor/outdoor speakers and are meant to be either vertical or horizontal. That way I can angle them down if they're horizontal instead of just angling them left or right while they're vertical.
