I just bought in-wall polk speakers and was wondering how far up the front wall should they be placed. I sit about 8ft. back from the tv which is against the front wall. The tower speakers that I have now,the speakers in them are about 4-5 feet high off the floor. Should I mount the in- walls at the same height. Thanks

They say the tweeter should be at ear height although in magazine articles in-walls seem to be placed much higher than that. I would try and keep all speakers at near the same height. If the tweeters are aim-able you have a little more flexibility. Ideally, you should try hooking them up and experimenting with different heights before mounting them. Polk has a pretty good web site (polkaudio.com) and it's own forum. Look there for more info. "Remember-if it sounds right to you, it is right!" (copyright, Mordaunt-Short.UK).
