Unless I've been misinformed, the general rule is all 3 front speaker tweeters should be ear height.

My center channel is very low to the ground since I'm using a projector (which only leaves 2 feet of clearance under the screen).
My question is, would tilting the speaker up towards the viewer help at all or does that somehow make it worse? Or if anyone can think of another solution I am open for suggestions.

Regardless where your center is, it should be aimed at the listening position, be it below the screen, above the screen, or behind the screen (in an acoustic transparent screen).

In most every case, all LCR mains, should be aimed directly at the primary listening position. All listeners in all seats should have a clear view of each speakers drivers.

Thanks for clarifying, it seemed like common sense that I should tilt it, but not knowing anything about speakers I had to make sure.
