Yes I have them mounted so that the centre of the horn is level with my ears when in MLP. But if I stand up or sit down, I hear very little difference TBH so I am not sure how critical this is.

Quick update


The 3677 I ordered is still waiting production as its not in regular manufacturnig anymore, should arrived dec-jan

But , the local rep tried to help in the meantime because of all the delays, and arranged for me an older model - Jbl tr125 which was used in an actual commercial cinema (before this they offered me the new 211 but its HUGE, I mean its 100 cm wide, even for me it seemed too much)

After I hooked it up in my living room to denon avr (no ext amp) I can tell you I was absolutly stunned. it just took command of the room. overall clarity/dynamics is superb, vocals are big and natural, details and midrange are clearer then ever. audysssey XT set it in -12 and still it sounded great , although I decided to turn up a bit manualy + turn up dialogue level and its even better. even at higher volumes its not fatiguing at all.

I was worried my LR svs ultra bookshelves will not be a good match but to my surprise it sounds fine so far. but I keep checking as I go.

I stared with few 5.1 trailers, LOGAN sounded out of this world, also "kong", "Jedi", some dolby/dts demos.
had time to watch "the great wall" (really, really bad movie but it sounded great), one scene grabbed my attention, when warriors on the wall played the big drums together. I dont know if consumer speakers can sound as live and musical and just cinematic as that scene was created on this speaker.

I had the same problem ordering 3677, waiting and waiting. That's why i bought the QSC 1150's and they're great.
And the same surround experience: my Canton bookshelves integrate well, but yesterday finally ordered 2 QSC SR-1020 surrounds to test. Once you're used to dynamics of CD's/horns and those large dynamic woofers, there is no going back

Sadly, people think a speaker is a speaker and put little credence to what you and @wolverin1 have stated. One has to experience high sensitive compression driver speakers before they believe it. Words really can't describe the difference between a cinema speaker and a normal 86-88db sensitive dome based speaker. It really is a night and day difference. Welcome to the dark side of the few but highly satisfied cinema speaker owners.

I was one of those people. I thought my old dome tweeter speakers were the great. Then I got the JBL 3677s. My 3677s are setup as LCR. There truly is nothing like it. I'll never go back to dome.

Did the surrounds upgrade make a big impact? Next week my bookshelves will be replaced by QSC 1020's, I'm curious if I will really notice the upgrade.

I am planning to upgrade to Atmos within a few months and was thinking to hang coaxials like the SCS 8 for that. What did you use before that, what is your impression?

Anyone with 3677's noticing any panel separation on the sides? I saw one collapsed on a facebook thread and went to check out the one I had in my shop I'm working on for someone. Sure enough, the side panels were not securely glued. I'm going to have to glue these up.
