The flatscreen will be mounted with the center at eye height. With the MP-950s directly to the sides, the tweeters - because they are on the lower end of the cabinets - will be a little lower than I would like (and lower than the often recommended 5/8s of the screen height). Mounting them upside down would give a much better tweeter height the way I see it. I don't want to mount them high up on the wall aesthetically speaking. Would there be a difference in sound having it mounted with the tweeters on the bottom? Is it even possible to mount them upside down? The wall-mounts on the backside seems pretty identical to the ones on the MP-150s and the MP-300s, and I have seen them be mounted both ways. How is this achieved? I haven't seen any pictures of the wall mount itself.
Thanks for any input you might have
I wouldn't get too hung up on the tweeter height TBH.
If you do want to mount them with the tweeter at the top just unscrew the mounting plate and re fix it 180 degrees. Add a little industrial Velcro to the new top rear of the MP950 just to prevent it falling forwards.
It will not be detrimental to the turn the MP950 180 degrees. We often do this with the in-wall IW950.
The V12 will match perfectly with the 950's.
If you are UK based let me know if you would like a dem of the 950's.
