For ideal stereophonic effects, we recommend the stereo speakers or satellites be placed
approximately 70cm apart and about 50cm to 100 cm away from the listener. The best listening
position is to sit in the middle of the two satellite speakers. There are no special requirements
on the Subwoofer placement, it can be place in position in the room. Subwoofer handles the
bass and depth, the low frequency range has no directional effect on our ears.
