View Full Version : Question regarding center channel placement and angle

01-24-2008, 06:04 PM
My center channel is almost 6 feet above the floor. My ear level is about 3 feet above the floor. There is not much I can do about this set up, it is what I have to work with.

So basically, my center channel is almost 3 feet above ear level (I'm pretty good at math) :)

I am using the Infinity Beta C360.

I was just wondering if it would be advisable to angle the center channel down a bit by boosting up the rear. This way it would be directed a bit more (but not totally) towards my ears. I could simply jack up the back with some wood or z-bricks. Just wondering if this was necessary, a good idea, bad idea, or any input anyone may have. Thanks !!

That's exactly what you need to do CC. I use door wedges for my center channel speaker. I angle mine so it fires just above my head.

I use thick rubber bumpers, the kind you put under the legs of chairs. I'm always looking for anything that helps with vibration isolation, and this would seem the best (read: Home Depot) way to accomplish this. I also use thin neoprene washers on the unelevated side to better decouple the speaker from the stand.

Angle to seating position for sure, mine cc is below screen but angled up.
