I've just upgrade my living room's rear channel speakers, so I have a pair of SpeakerCrafts that are unused. I think they're 6.2's, but I haven't looked; they're not high-end speakers by any definition. I would like to put them in my kitchen, more or less just for pleasant noise. My question is: where?
I have a peaked ceiling above light boxes, sort of like this ascii art:
/ \\ <---- at this level? it's 11 ft above the floor
L L and there is a lot of granite around the room.
where S = skylights, L = lightboxes, C = cabinets. I can put them pretty much anywhere I choose. The wires will be laid in the lightboxes and the speakers will be recessed. Should I put them at one end, or two "across" from each other in the sloped ceiling? Would I care? I seriously doubt anyone will listen critically in this room - either it's background music or news in the morning, or it's where the party inevitably congregates on Saturday. Either way, critical listening is some other time, and in the living room.
They're being supplied as zone2 from my preamp and with a 40wpc power amp I had left over from pre-HT days, if it makes any difference. I was going to use regular "speaker wire" as I don't htink it makes any difference in this application.
