A little more info:
-The screen is already ordered, shipping now. It's 130" diagonal 16:9, NOT an AT screen. 64" tall, plus 7" of border, so 71" total height.
-Top of the screen will be roughly 18" from the ceiling, bottom will be roughly 20" from floor. Floor is tile, ceiling is drywall.
-No special work done to the room, it's not a dedicated home theater, it's a living room.
-Seating distance is about 19 feet from the screen, that's why I have such a large screen. No second row.
-speakers are nothing special, part of an "all-in-one" 5.1 surround set. I'll get better speakers some day, but for now these are what I'm using.
I'm guessing bottom is the way to go, just want to know how bad they would be at the top. It would be nice to get them up high so the kids don't try to mess with them, but if the sound will be terrible that way, I'll keep them low.
