Default Desktop Bookshelf Speaker Placement

Hi Guys..

Just about finished with my setup, only issue is the right hand speaker, the monitor which is sort of above it is a tad low, the tweeter is still in the clear, here are some pics..





As you can see the speaker is just below it, will this effect sound performance much?

I had to buy a Monitor arm just to make space, lol..

as long as there is line of sight between tweeter and ear, shouldn't be too bad

probably not ideal, but shouldn't impact sound too much if at all

is the monitor easily movable, so you can listen with and without it?

Not really.

I have changed it a little..







The monitor cable is probably 4 inches away from speaker, the monitor itself is easily 7-8 inches away and 1 1/2 above tweeter..

Sound measurements show no difference from the left speaker so all is good!!

lay speakers on their side if your CDO allows it. Could have your monitors at the same height.

CDO?

Main monitor will be to high if I raise it up, The second monitor is used for movies, tv shows and simple games like Football Manager, Facebook games etc. Stuff easily done without attention.

Possibly, Speakers on side are an option, but the Dali's do not fair well on their side.

I'll put it this way. If you were looking to squeeze as much performance from your speaker as possible, you would not place them like this. Ideally, they should be on stands, away from the wall, off the table, and both speakers should have no barriers between them and your ears.

But ... these are computer speakers. My computer speakers hide behind the monitor, because I don't really care how well they perform.

I'd put the second monitor above the main one so your speakers aren't blocked.

Yeah no shit Sherlock, I know enough to know this.

But I do not have the room for stands, so it is desk top or nothing, I simply made this post to see if anyone had any other idea's, which you have not really contributed much to at all.

Your bookshelf speakers aren't on book shelves!
,i'd use them as they are, as long as each one is roughly the same from them to you, there should be no differences. unless you can get them both above the screens, i'd worry none.

so long as your ears can hear both drivers, they'll be fine

What he's saying (in my words) is that you are pretending to care but not actually giving enough of a shit to make any difference whatsoever
