    First off I'm sorry if this is a dumb question as I don't know all that much about speakers. I have the Onkyo HT770 surround sound speakers and was wondering if I lay my two front speakers on their side instead of standing them up will this effect the sound quality or hurt the speakers in anyway?

    The reason I want to do this is because they would look uniform to the center speaker as I'm putting the speakers on shelves in the front of my home theater.

    thanks

    Should be fine. It does affect the sound a little in that their dispersion pattern will be more like the center, but it won't cause damage.

    It probably won't harm them, but it may hurt their stereo imaging capabilities.
