I've got a 4-5 year old set of Paradigm Monitor dipole speakers that I'm trying to position. I think they only support mounting and not book shelf style as the bottoms aren't fully flat. The home we just bought has an awesome media room in it. Speaker placement is good for everything except one last speaker, the right side surround speaker.
The right side of the room has a huge 8'x4' window in it. If the speaker is mounted below the window it would be 2 feet below ear level and the furniture would interfere with the sound. If the speaker is mounted above the window it would be 8 feet off the ground (too high right?). The room is 20 feet wide by 23 feet long.
One thought I had was to somehow fashion a custom bracket that would mount under the window, then navigate around the window sill lip, and up a foot or so and mount the speaker to it. That would place the speaker at about the right height, but I don't have the resources or ideas to fabricate this type of bracket.
Another idea I had was to mount a bracket above the window that drops straight down about 3 feet and mount the speaker there. But this design creates a visual and logistical problem with the wiring.
Lastly I've thought of a lone speaker stand, but it'd need to accommodate the rear mounting of the speaker as it won't simply sit of a sand. I haven't been able to find such a stand.
What other options can you think of? What would you do if there was a huge window right where you needed to mount a speaker?
Thank you for reading and adding any help to this challenge!
