OK I have read many many posts, and one thing I have come across a lot is that LCR speakers should all be at ear level.


Now I just got my 60" (54.8W) Plasma and planning to put all three in-wall speakers beneath it as in the picture.



Now will I get good sound or should I stretch out the L&R speakers


Thanks

Thanks for the quick response. I guess I have to sacrifice aesthetics over

sound.


I will still keep all three at ear level, but will stretch out L&R by 6". I do not have a lot of room to play with.

I would second the suggestion to space them further apart. As one data point (certainly not a law, but an informed suggestion), THX suggests L & R speakers be between 22 and 30 degrees to the left and right of the center.

OK I sperated them as far as possible, I am limited with space, plus I do not want to rebuild a wall.


Stud placement is a big pain. I will have to cut out one stud to make room for the center speaker, that same stud is also holding the center of the mount.


But that wont matter as I have to move the mount 1-2 inches to the left and double up right side stud. TV is already all the way on the left of the mount.


Below are some pics, and thanks for the info.


This is the right hand speaker, as you can see I can not go any further to the left



This is the left speaker, it also cannot go any further to the left.



This Stud will be partly cutout to make room for the center speaker



This is how the front looks now, TV is a little off center based on the speakers, but will be fixing that soon.
