Where to Position Your Bookshelf Speakers in your Brisbane Home

If you have limited space, or just don’t want huge floor mounted speakers taking up valuable floor space, then a good pair of bookshelf speakers will fit your Brisbane home perfectly. However, before you rush out to buy a pair, it’s worth thinking about where you’ll place them. Placement of bookshelf speakers is crucial and can mean the difference between an average or a fantastic sound.

First, as the name suggests, bookshelf speakers are designed to be elevated, on a shelf or somewhere else that is roughly ear-level when you’re listening to them. Don’t put your bookshelf speakers on the floor, as you’ll lose some sound definition. The ideal position is an equal distance at the 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock positions of where you’re sitting, at ear height. If this isn’t possible, then at least try to get the two speakers the same distance away at roughly the same level. Try to angle the speakers inwards by about 10 degrees for the optimum sound.

If you have young children, you might want to think about elevating your speakers out of reach, or you can buy wall brackets to keep them out of the way.
