How close should speakers be positioned to the screen material? I would assume that they should be as close as possible (1-2 inches) but would like to confirm this.

Try to get at least 4" inches between the screen and the tweeter. There is diminishing improvement beyond 12".

I have 5 1/2" between and can't tell the difference between the screen up and down.

Randy,
Are you using the equalizer that comes with the screen? I was told it does not make that much of a difference.

I do use the Stewart-EQ, and I agree with what you've been told, it does not make much difference (it doesn't have to...microperf is very acoustically transparent). I just don't want any trouble with the THX police:)

I should be able to get 6-8" between the screen and the center channel speaker. This sounds like it should work fine.
