8050 ceiling corner installation angle

Hello, I would like to place 2 8050 speakers in the corners of my room, high up at the ceiling level (the wall is 2.5 m tall). My question is: what is the ideal angle at which to tip the speaker downwards?

Thank you, NATE K in Berkeley

Hi Nate,

Ideal angle is determined by the height and listening distance. You should tilt the monitors so that they are directed to your listening position, not over or under it.
