    I just received my Paradigm Studio ADPs. I will be using them as SIDE speakers in a 7.1 set up. Studio 40s will be used as the rears (about 3-4 feet behind me).

    Now, should I keep the side speakers at ear level, on a speaker stand, like the rest of my set up?

    Or should I mount them around 5 1/2 feet above the ground, directly to my sides?

    Please let me know what would work best.


    Thank you.

    Bi/di speakers to the side should be directly inline and above the listener (2-3ft).

    Placement as John mentioned (directly to the sides, tweeter 2-3 ft above ear level, mounted to the wall).
