I have JBL e30. The dimention of that speaker is 8-3/8X15X12(W x H x D)
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! ).
**S26 Dimensions (H x W x D) 17" x 10" x 10" / Weight 22 lb
Hope this helps,
any low end speaker stand recommendation? and metal or wood, which one is better?
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.
I am not a handy person though.
Iris, Sanus makes very good Speaker Stands like this one found @ Buy.com
Sanus Systems BF24B Speaker Stands (24")
Mfg Part#: BF24B
That would put your tweeter approx. 33" high up from the floor.
If you use these for the surrounds, I would put them higher (recommended by Dolby Labs) like I did with my Right Side Surround JBL S26! I hung it like a large wall hanging! (The Left Side is on top of my oak bookshelf)
Here's my HT/family room / speaker layout - overhead view.
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 =).
Should be fine w/the tweeter @ approx. 40" high.
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.
