can these monitors installed sideways? are there any guidelines about this?

also, I already own a 7270a and I wonder if it would be enough to complement such configuration in a 2.1 system.

thanks in advance

These monitors can be installed sideways with the exception that the DCW must be rotated 90 degrees so that the midrange driver remains always located at the bottom of the DCW. Please see 1037 and 1038 operating manual (this information applies also for 1237 and 1238) for more information:

7270A can be used with these monitors but a single unit won't be able to match the maximum SPL capability of the speakers which means that if you play at high levels, the subwoofer will start to limit the SPL before the monitors. Our recommendation for 1x37 or 1x38 based stereo system is 7x71 or 2x 7x70 subwoofer. ... selection/
