Hey guys,

I'm rigging a projector that will throw an image onto a screen thats basically going to hang over a working fireplace.

The brick of the fireplace goes all the way to the ceiling.

My plan is then to mount a soundbar to live in the 90 degree angle between the brick and the ceiling.

Two question:

1. Anybody know an easy way to do this? I know most soundbars are designed to mount to a vertical wall. I'd like to be able to tilt mine to 45 degrees.

2. Any opinions on how this will affect the sound? I've heard higher is better with speakers. Should I avoid models like the yamaha which don't have a floor-positioned subwoofer?

Alex

Ear height is best for speakers. Up against the ceiling is a terrible idea for speakers. I don't think a sound bar would be the best solution for this application but this would partly depend on budget.
