    Hi EVERYone,

    Is there any guidelines for placement of the front speakers (Klipsch SB-1's in my case). I know the centre channel should be about head level (when sitting down) and pointed at the audience. I wasn't too sure about the front surround speakers ie. the height and distance apart they should be.

    thanks,

    Armin

    A good rule of thumb to use is that you want your tweeters (horns) at seated ear level (approx 38 to 40 inches high) and that you would want your left and right front speakers to be at least 6 feet apart for proper stereo imaging in 2-channel listening situations.
