Thank you, Jim! I had a blast with these speakers.Good stuff Dennis! Thanks for the really thorough write up.
Thank you, Glenn!Thank you for this informative and well written article.
You mentioned going through several iterations of setup to integrate the center channel. Jon Lane has remarked that using these MTMs in the vertical orientation can produce the best sound.
Have you decided if you are leaving the center speaker horizontal?
If you experimented with a vertical orientation, do you have any notes to share if there were noticeable differences between horizontal/vertical?
I only set the A2rx-c center up one way, as pictured. I have no other options without blocking the HDTV. Someone with an AT screen would indeed be best served by a vertical A2rx-c at the same height as the L/R. If nothing else, because the center would be further from the floor (or ceiling).
Judging by the 2 channel sound I heard, and based on what we know about MTM designs, I am confident that vertical orientation is best for the center, especially for off axis listeners.
If I have time this weekend, I'll rotate the tweeter, see if I can get the center elevated to the same height as the L/R, and listen to some hi rez 5.1 music. Being directly on axis with the center, I do not expect a vertical placement to make as big a difference as simply elevating the center, but it will be interesting to experiment with it.
