We have a wall unit that has an open area to put the tv and then right on top of that space is a shelf. If we put the 32in tv in there there is just barely enough room to fit the center speaker on top of the tv. But, my concern is getting some sort of wierd effect because of the shelf that would be directly above the speaker. Yet, if I move the speaker up to the shelf it feels like it is really high. It's only a few inches different but it feels monumental. You'ld have to see it to understand what I'm talking about. And since it is part of a satellite system the speaker is not exactly going to fill the room... would you suggest height and angle it down with doorstops so that the speaker has room to breathe? or put it right on top of the tv so that it doesn't feel like it's way above the listener? also-- does anyone know how far apart you should set the front speakers? Wasn't there some formula for figuring it out?
