First Theater Build - Pointers Please

All,

There has been a ton of great information which has been a lot to digest. I am building my first dedicate home theater and in the design phase, and wall tear down. I have my front channel speakers already which are Focal Electra Tower Speakers - 1028be II and the corresponding Center Channel. I will get all the equipment after I have the room designed and underway.

I am struggling with how to place the tower speakers in the front; as I want to have an awesome Movie experience but as well have a great music experience. I am looking at a AT screen of 140" with a 4" or 3.5" edge.

If I put speakers on floor (tweeter @ ear level) then the 4" supporting back/edge will cover part of my low freq driver.
If I put speaker on stand I will have tweeter above ear level and question the sound outcome for music.
If I put speaker in front I block the screen
Want to put speaker in most optimal position..

Suggestions? Am I missing any approach without having to go with a smaller 2.35 screen?

Flip the speaker upside down?

Dr. Toole of Revel has his Salon2’s upside down, and so should you!

Leave it at 8 ohms and call it a day :)

this would put my high driver on the deck not at ear level.. i don’t see how putting my speaker upside down provides me any acoustic value.

Slightly angled supports built for the mains are a readily available solution.

Put the L/R speakers out side the screen L/R boundaries toe in to the MLP and hide with acoustically transparent fabric.
