Positioning Your In-Wall Speakers

The place you install your in-wall speaker is where it will give you the best possible audio listening quality.

For movie, or music, the best position is your ear level. Thats at a height of about 40 inches above the floor level.

You also need to consider the space between each speaker. The basic rule is to keep them about six to ten feet away from each other and at least three feet away from the corners of the room. This will ensure that the sound quality is the best possible one for the space concerned.

A big advantage of wall mounted speakers is that their position can be changed. The ball and socket design of the wall-mounted speakers allow easy movement during the positioning of the shaft.

Angling of the speakers is achieved using the mounting shaft. These will generally allow direction at any angle through 180 degrees.

Wall mounting brackets make positioning the speakers in inconvenient places, such as high on the ceiling, near a corner, or against the side of an angled wall, has become easy.
