7.1 side surround speakers ....can they be too high on the wall?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My room doesnt work as well as i would like for the side speaker placement. I can place the side speakers close to the ceiling on the walls and i'm now wondering if thats too hig? The speakers are 1ft in length and will come a few inches off or from the ceiing b/c of a door and window on the side walls.

Any thoughts?

I'm also running a long sub wire for approx. 50ft, actually less but always good to have enough slack. Any thoughts on the best subwoofer speaker wire and does it loss signal strength with a run that long?

Thanks

Fine to place your side speakers high up. Place them directly to your sides so that they are well separated from your rear speakers.

That too, proximity to the rear speakers, was a concern given the room dimensions, 13x19, and where I have to sit, approx 12-13 ft from the screen.

Any thoughts on a long sum cable run? Equip will be in the back of the room so sub cables has to go up 1 wall into the attic, across the room (20ft. Approx), then down another wall and then over a few feet for center placement.

I had the same concern when I designed my media room in my basement a few years ago.

Both side speakers are in-wall type, and no more than a few inches from the ceiling. One is in a wall, the other is in soffit. Sounds great, and has a nice clean look that my wife really likes. Separate satellite speakers were not an option - did not like the look.
