My living room has a very, very high ceiling. very high. There is more of a limit on the height of the latter I can get to mount them, then the potential height of my "front high" speakers. That being so, how high should i really put my Front High speakers ? I have fairly crummy speakers now, but am slowly upgrading as time goes buy (oi' i just spent 3,000 on a television with a veterins budget.... I'm not exactly working with unlimited funds). In short, will end up with two tower front speakers with two "front high" speakers in this room that is made of brick, hardwood floor and has pictures posted in my other subjest (here
). I'm using Energy RC-Micro for my Front High - center- Rear speakers and some old Towers for my Left and Right speakrs for now.... eventually the Energys will end up in my bedroom and towers on craigslist but for now my priority is mounting the universal-adjustable speaker mounts for my front*high and rear speakers in the optimum position for over-all quality.
I'm looking for 7.1 sound in this room and I suspect that Front High will prove more valuable then extra rears simply due to the extremel height of the room.
I aim to have my primary viewing spot exactly 10 feet from my 60es8000 television. I'm not very good at geomatry, i don't really understand angles and degrees. I'm a dumb grunt that only has a college degree because The Army paid for it. I'm just trying to do the best I can to get the most out of anything I can afford. If anyone can give me the hard numbers, or a clear formula that doesnt require a protractor to calculate the ideal height of my Front-High speakers (and if you are feeling generious the Front and Rears too...) then I'de appreciate it an awfull lot. I'm really struggeling to get everything just perfect for my new condo.
I've spent a lot of time searching in The AVS Forum and ive come across a lot of great stuff but the reality is I have a hard time understanding the angles and how to calculate them. I'm in a rough spot, see, because I'm a perfectionist and at the same time unable to do the math for the perfection in this scenario.
