Hello all! I’d really appreciate some help.
My two front speaker tweeters are 4-5 inches above my head and I’d like to tilt them down. So I thought I’d use a laser level to be precise. And also use it so my Center (above tv) can be tilted down so they all aim same height.
Problem is, I’m a bit dumb and not sure how to properly use the thing.
It has 2 modes. A self centering mode, and a lock mode. The self centering mode isn’t good because as soon as i tip the speaker the laser level auto corrects, so everything would be tipped way more than needed.
So the proper way would be to use the lock mode? My speakers are are on carpet so they’re not even so should I self Center and then lock in and then tip them? That would work for the left and right speakers, but the Center channel is on a stand that’s kind of wobbly and the trigger used to switch from self Center to lock mode makes it jiggle so i can’t get it to be accurate on the Center channel.
I thought I’d place the laser level on any flat surface, let it self Center, then lock it mode and that would make tilting every speaker easy. But depending on what surface I use (table, floor, kitchen counter) I get wildly different numbers. Putting locked laser from table onto tilted speaker gives me 45 inches. Whereas level locked on kitchen counter will give the same tilt 43 inches.
I just don’t know how to accurately use this thing and the instructions weren’t much help. I’d appreciate any advice. Sorry for rambling
