    Nice looking setup. I could be wrong, but it looks like you might be able to turn the center so that it is vertically oriented. Might be worth a try, as you get better off axis performance (theoretically). I too have CMT 340's in the front, but don't have the room to turn vertically.

    I would probably widen the fronts a bit and lower the tv to get it closer to eye level. Nice looking setup though!

    I agree. But, if they are comfortable with that height on the TV, then that is fine too.

    I just mounted my TV above a stand, so that I too could fit a CMT 340 underneath it and it is a little too high. My eye level is about 1/6 up the height of the screen rather than at 1/3 or a little higher and I find it uncomfortable. Though, I'm giving myself a month or so to see if I get used to it.

    It actually sounds better this way. The voice is coming from the front line not on the bottom now. Thanks never would I have thought of that.

    Great! It could just be that you didn't have the speaker angled up, when it was laid down horizontally. With the horizontal configuration, you would want the tweeter to be aimed at your ear level in the main seat. You can figure out this angle if you have a laser pointer. Just put it on the top of the speaker and tilt it until the red dot is just above ear level. Then pick up a small door stop wedge or rubber feet from the hardware store to hold that angle. But, if you have the space, the vertical orientation of the speaker is best, especially if you are not sitting dead center in the room.

    Nice! Doesn't look bad either
