Speaker placement and positioning

Speaker placement can affect how your system sounds in the listening area. Get tips on positioning your speakers for the best sound quality.

Placement Suggestions:

Left and Right front speakers
  1. Place the cube speakers on line with the horizontal center of the TV screen or higher.
  2. Place the cube speakers 6 to 15 feet apart.
  3. One cube of the array should face directly into the room to provide direct sound while the other faces a wall to provide reflected sound.
  4. All of the cube speakers are magnetically shielded, and can be placed close to a monitor.
Center speaker
  1. The sound from the center speaker should appear to come from the center of the screen.
  2. Place the speaker either above or below the TV, on line with the vertical center of the screen.
  3. Aim each cube slightly away from center to create a wide area of direct sound
Left and Right rear speakers
  1. The rear (surround) speakers should be located in the rear half of the room, preferably behind the listener.
  2. Place the speakers at ear level or higher if possible.
  3. One cube of the array should face directly into the room to provide direct sound while the other faces a wall to provide reflected sound.
Acoustimass Module
  1. Place the Acoustimass module along the same wall as the TV.
  2. Do not block the vent openings at the back of the Acoustimass module. This could cause the module to overheat.
  3. The Acoustimass module can safely sit on its side, but do not stand it on the end with the port or on the end opposite the port.
  4. The Acoustimass module is not magnetically shielded, and must be placed at least 18 to 24 inches from a TV monitor.
    Note: Only CRT style TVs are affected. This includes Tube style TVs and Rear Projections with CRTs
