I have a question about the center surround sound speaker. our center speaker is sitting on the fireplace mantel while the others are placed in the ceiling I have been troubled about this for the last couple of months since it seems as if everyone else has theirs placed in the ceiling centered over the fireplace. So today my husband called the electrician explained to him my concern he stated that normally the center speaker is placed on the mantel for a better sound and, that they would place it in the ceiling if we would like, but he suggested that we go to our local stereo system shop and ask the same questions about where the center speaker should be for the best sound first . So my question is for anyone who has the ceiling surround sound installed with the center speaker in the ceiling, How does it sound ? And Do you think the sound coming straight at you when looking at the TV would make a difference. Thanks guys for your responses I have to make a decision and call the electrician back.
