* How to set up your home theater speakers

Ecoustics has another helpful guide up today: how to place your home theater's speakers for best results.

First thing to remember: every speaker system has a "sweet spot" where the sound is perfect. Even an IMAX theater.

As you are reviewing the diagrams, remember that the goal of all speaker placement for movie soundtrack playback and multichannel music reproduction -- even stereo -- is a smooth, consistent and unbroken soundstage across the front, coupled with a sense of envelopment in the ambient surround effects. In other words, you're after a sense of location, whether that is suggested by what's on-screen, by the recording venue or even the dry, intimate acoustic of many pop/rock studio recordings.
They've got three diagrams, including a suggestion for how to set things up if you've got a TV placed in the corner of the room rather than against one wall.

My system is pretty close to that diagram. Success!
