I have a lot of stupid sounding questions that I'm trying to figure out the answer too, so no better place than to ask you guys.
I completed my home theater setup, and am wondering what the best way to initally set up my speakers is.
Specifically, these are the main concerns I have...
Would I be better off having the center speaker above ear level (above the tv), level with my ears while sitting, or perhaps low to the ground facing upwards?
Also, with the the 4 surround speakers I have, should the rears and sides be the same height? And what height should that be? Above my ears on the wall or a stand, or at ear level while sitting? Also, ideally, how far apart should those rears be? Just opposite my couch (12 feet) or maybe a little closer or further?
I know experimentation is the best way to achieve the best setup, but I was wondering what I should initially try before I start tinkering.
I will be sitting about 9 feet from the tv and front speakers. Behind me, I will have about 3 feet to spare, and I have room to the sides at the 9 feet mark where I sit.
