Since I moved my equipment into the living room, I have the surrounds (Paradigm ADP-170s) sitting on speaker stands on either side of the listening position. It is kind of akward that I have a speaker standing beside a recliner about 2' in front of a sofa along the side wall. (And the wife doesn't like it either. :wink: ) We can live with it but it is kind of an eyesore and in the way, not to mention the wires running across the carpet under the recliners and out to the stand. I want to mount the ADPs on the side walls but the way the room is designed, the lowest I can mount the surround on one side is 8'. There is a partition wall with a window in it and the only place I can mount is above the window. Has anyone had experience with mounting surrounds that high? How did it sound? I'm willing to experiment but I don't want to start drilling holes and putting anchors in the walls if it isn't going to work.
