I'm debating whether to Mount my speakers on the wall "they come with mounting brackets" or spend the extra money on stands. Is there an audio advantage to either way? And if Wall mounting is there a specific height and placement that needs to be followed? I was going to either wall mount the rear speakers or place them on stands, and I thought I would just set the front speakers on either end of my fireplace mantel. Any reason I would not want to do this? Any help would be appreciated. Oh if it matters I bought the Energy 5.2 sytem. And My room is about 12 X 18 and the TV sits in one of the corners of the room. So If I set my Center speaker on the TV it will not really be in the center of the front speakers but it will be facing the viewing area. Is that alright?
Thanks that was helpful, but I'm wondering the way my room is set up its basically a rectangle, and the TV is in one of the corners. So If I put two front speakers on either long end and 2 surround on the opposite walls, will I want to center the Center speaker inbetween the 2 front speakers, or still put it on top of the television so it seems like the sound is coming from the television??? And typically were is the best area in a situation like this to place the Sub woofer? Unfortuantely I do not have a lot of options as far as placing my televison. Thanks
