Is placing your speakers half-way between floor and ceiling a bad idea?


In my last video I talked about finding the right size computer screen for your home studio setup (it’s actually a speaker placement question).

As a follow up, our fellow no-voodoo brother Ben C. asked me what happens though when your room is exactly 8 feet high and you end up placing your speakers 4 feet of the ground, so exactly mid way between floor and ceiling.

So often you read that you shouldn’t have your tweeters half-way up the room.

But what’s going on here?

And is it something to worry about if it happens to be the case in your room?

Let me explain in this week’s video.
