Should I point speakers to my ear or straight?
Whether you have your speakers on stands, on a shelf or wall-mounted, remember that speakers are generally designed so that they sound best when they are level with your ears when you are listening to them.
Do speakers sound better on the floor?
DO recognize audio speakers are most effective at ear-level. If you’re a stickler for sound, the floor is not the best place for them. If your speakers are small enough, consider placing them on a desk, shelf or console. DON’T ever put your speakers directly on the floor.
