You’ll want your surrounds one to two feet above ear level to get the best sound effects.\n\n\n@mazersteven, Thanks. They are actually about 1 1\/2ft now. I'll leave them there. You guys have been a major help so far. As a senior who has tinkered with audio and video for years and still knows very little about either, i feel somewhat inferior but all of your replies have been very satisfying. Being on a fixed income and addicted somewhat to this hobby late in life, acquiring nicer higher-end equipment is out of reach but i am content with what i now have but don't want to be short-changed in sound quality with what i do have.\n\nThanks again and i'm sure there will be more newb questions along the way.\n\nSorry to have hijacked the Pro's & Joe's thread with a bunch of questions.
