I have two JBL E30 bookshelfs as my surrounds. I know about the "correct" height and that the surrounds are supposed to face each other. However, in the room that I have for home theatre one speaker has to be 8' off the ground while the other can be 6.5' (head clearance). Having them both at 6.5' os not an option. Having them both at 8' IS an option but it looks really bad. The best compromise that I can see without going to in wall speakers is to vary their heights. With calibration (I am waiting for my preorder copy of HDVD essentials to arrive) will this setup be ok? Would I be better off selling the E30's for some in walls?


Thank you,


Nick

If you have to mount them at different heights then do it and feel no guilt.
It will work. When you adjust the channel levels the fact that the slant ranges differ won't make any difference. I'll bet that in use you won't be able to tell that there is a 1.5 foot difference.


If you have doubts put one up on step ladder and give it listen.
