  4. speaker placement behind CIH screen for 16:9 content

    2.35:1 Constant Image Height Chat
    I was wondering if this was a dumb thing to do. I am leaning more towards getting a cinemascope screen instead of a 16:9 one. However, since there will be regular tv being watched on this screen as well some times, I am wondering if I should place my speakers behind where the 16:9 portion of...

    Hey, you guys. Long time lurker, here. Many, many thanks for literally years of great indirect advice. My first home theater was not great, but it was certainly stronger than it would have been had I not had the AVS Forums as a resource. But now it’s time for HT 2.0. I’m starting with an...
