How to setup an eltax surround system? what exact place do I put them (also behind me)? It contains 4 speakers, 1 sub-w, and 1"tweeter/high range" to put on your tv.
I thank You sincerely!
Well, that is pretty dependent on the room size and seating position. Ideally the center channel should be directly under the TV. This is where 90% of the dialog will come from. The two tall speakers should then be placed adjacent to the TV, preferably a couple of feet away. The smaller surround sound speakers should be approximately ear level, to slightly above and behind the viewer. The surround speakers are bipolar, so they will radiate sound out of each side, therefore you do not need to "angle' them towards the listener. The sub woofer doesn't really matter, the bass frequencies are non-directional. I like to hide it under a table or something like that.
Some new receivers have built in surround set up programs that will send a test signal to each speaker and "listen" then adjust the delay and volume accordingly. Without that it will take some trial and error to get any system dialed into the perfect settings. Then what may be ideal for one specific location will sometimes not sound as good from another in the same room.
