Thank you for all the years of Community discussions and activity!

The time has come for us to retire the community forums, but we will keep everything available for reading. There is a lot of valuable content written over the years, and you'll be able to access all of that. However, no new posts can be written, or old posts modified.

If you have questions, we recommend you use the Support function on the bottom right corner to contact our Customer Support directly.

Alternatively, if you wish to engage in a community discussion with other people, there are many active forums available. There is also an active, fan managed GENELEC COMMUNITY in Facebook, and many Genelec employees are active in the discussions there.

We are sorry for any possible inconvenience this may cause you, but we hope to hear from you through the other channels mentioned above.

G One as a center speaker

I'm plannig of a small 5.1 home theatre with G one speakers. I have a slight issue with placing the center speaker.

The only reasonable position would be in a shelf under the television. I would even have to place the speaker on it's side horizontaly. How badly that will effect the sound quality. Would someone happen to have tried that already or would you genelec pro's be able to tell out of the bat that it's a bad idea to even think of. What caught my attention was a picture in the manual that had a "no-not" sign over a pictrure of placing the speaker on it's side.

Thanks in advance and cheers!

Explanation for studio applications in the link below. For homes, it is not that critical, if you like the way it sounds, it is fine!


Best Regards, Markus
