    What effect will be had on the sound if you placed your mains at the same height as your center, and spread them further apart?

    Because I'll tell you what my tv is up pretty high, my s-center sets up about 6.5~7 ft up. So I wanted the mains to be the same height. Thing about it is that's the same height my surrounds are. When I did that last night, immediately after calibration I heard a difference. I started hearing my surrounds as loud as I used to hear my mains and vice versa. And my mains are as far apart as my surrounds are, they used to be right next to the tv about 6ft apart, now they're 11ft apart, s-center is smack in the middle. Is this a bad idea?

    It used to look like this except with the S instead of the N series.http://lamarcusjames.tripod.com/site...ures/front.jpg

    What most people do is tilt the center so that it is pointed at the level of your head when you are seated.

    Having speakers at the same level is an option but you'll need to put them so that they are equi-distant from the seating position. This would place them in an arc across the front. Even if you can't do that you should still tilt your center.
