    Just got my system here at work and opened it to check out the brackets for wall mounting.
    For those of you that wall mounted them what's the ideal height for mounting them ... listening from a seated position.
    Do they sound good mounted on the wall? .... OR .... are you using stands?
    Thanks gentlemen ...

    My friend has the 5.2 and followed that format and it sounds great.

    Anthony ... thanks ... did he mount the fron L and R as well?
    The Dolby page talks about surrounds only.
    I want all the speakers except the center mounted ...
    Thanks ...

    Usually you want your fronts a little in front of the display, at least in line with the center at any rate. Mounting the front speakers on the walls usually results in them being behind everything else which isn't an ideal situation.

    Basically my set-up can be seen in my Signature Link (with the old speakers)
    So the TV is not that far forward ... let me try it tonight.
    I really have to mount all the speakers as I do not want any stands taking up space on the floor. As you can see I am pretty cramped.
    Can't wait to hear the sub ... my first sub ever!

    Well the system is setup temporarily and I must say that even in it's temporary setup it already sounds better than my previous system ...
    The Take 5.2 is definetelly more efficient than the Paradigms and that subwoofer is hard to believe. Granted I have a pretty small room but it still unreal the way it blends with the mains and how low it goes for it's size.
    The satellites have proven to deliver more than I imagined. They are seamless and I love the clarity!
    Wonder how they will sound once on the wall?
