    The tweeter height should be the within a couple of inches above or below your seated ear height - between 33" - 36" off the ground.

    Pick a stand that will solidly support your E30's and raise the tweeter to your seated ear height!

    I use 20" speaker stands for my JBL S26's** and that places my tweeter 35" off the ground (my seated ear height is approx. 33" - cushy comfy couch! [​IMG] ).

    **S26 Dimensions (H x W x D) 17" x 10" x 10" / Weight 22 lb

    Hope this helps,
    Phil

    if you have some free time, it is quite easy to build your own speaker stand. I built 4 of mines with materials purchased from Home Depot. The final product is only a fraction of the cost of the retail stands.

    Sanus also has a 31" speaker stand. do you think that's 2high for a 12" speaker? it'd put the tweater in the 40"ish range... but i have very high chairs =).

    cool thx. i notice the image is much better. i had my fronts mounted at nearly standing height. when i sad down, i didn't get any imagery. i'm surprised at the lack of vertical dispersion speakers have vs. horizontal.
