So im rearranging some of my speakers for a better setup. I sit about 8 feet away from my 75ish inch screen. Would my center be better off below the screen? which is where i have it now. ( its about two or 3 feet below my ears) or above the screen? Im not totally sure the mount that came with it will allow me to angle it down or not though. Thanks

In either case your visual cues will over-ride your audio cues and the sound will seem to come from the center of the screen. But having the source that far below your ears isn't good for high frequencies, which tend to travel in a straight line. In both cases you want the tweeter axis aimed at head level at the listening position.

ok so it would be best to have it above and angled at my head level?
