Hi guys,

My central speaker is Polk CSiA6. It's a big one and it just fits into a shelf right under TV (with 1/2 inch left vertically), so I cannot elevate the front of the speaker to point it at my head. But if I put it upside down it's aiming will be just right.


Do you think it will disturb sound somehow?

Thank you.

That's why the speaker cabinet is designed that way. Sometimes it's just the best we can do. I had mine that way for a long time before moving it to the top of my display.
