- Real Name
For my new HT setup I have the choice of putting the center speaker either above or below the flat screen display. If it goes above then the placement will allow the front edge of the speaker to be even with the front of the screen below, but the mounting will be cumbersome due to the presence of a 45-degree sloped section of "ceiling" (or "wall" depending on your orientation, I suppose) directly above the console. The alternative is to place the center speaker on the base of the flat screen, but then the front edge of the speaker will be about 6 inches in front of the plane of the screen. Is there any generally-accepted advice about which of these arrangements is best in terms of sound quality and "realism"? The primary viewing location will be about 10-12 feet from the screen. Thanks in advance.
