    How high are your ears when sitting on the couch/lazy boy? I'm just trying to get a general idea of others listening habits. I want some ideas on how high I need my tweeters. I measured and my ears are about 40in high? Does that sound right?

    I'm thinking I want my tweeters about 42in high b/c my S38s need to be a high above listening level (straight from JBL tech). Sound good?

    Ideally, all front sound stage tweeters, Center, Left and Right, should be as close to "your" sitting ear level as possible. I have my L and R tweeters at ear level and my center tweeter about 13 or 14 inches lower, below the screen, tilted up at my ears.

    That's what I was wondering- what is your ear level height? Just curious...

    About 45 inches from the floor.
