    I just moved to my new house, but just before I decided to move I bought 7.1 home theatre system.
    My new house has more ceiling height than my old one, so this posed a problem for me when installing the side speakers as the ceiling is leaning upwards from the living room window.
    I would love all suggestion on where to place the speakers.

    I was thinking about using and LCD screen wall mount on swivel arm that I have laying around, but the one thing that is bothering be is the angle of the ceiling.

    That is why I showed that kind of ceiling mount. You could always make your own. Use/buy/make 1-2 foot drop by the window/wall. Then, depending on the drop needed(6 feet???) use/buy/make ceiling mounts to drop them down to the same height as the ones by the wall/window.
    Or, just mount them "up"...depends what you want to do.
    Dropping from the ceiling will create the best sound, but makes them visible...
    Those Omnimounts(hardly the only choice out there) hold a 20 pound speaker. Yours are only 12 pounds.

    Thanks I am looking into the "amazon" mount for the one that needs to bee dropped down to the same height. I was just wondering if the sound would be affected if it would be installed in the ceiling.
