My center is above the TV. Probably just over 6' off the floor. Problem??

Shouldn’t be if it’s toed down to fire at the seats. It’s a tad high yet I’ve seen installations where, depending on the room’s reverbs, a higher placed center is far better than one too low (at knee height and aimed at the knees).

A lot depends on the dispersion characteristics of the speaker: some centers hold a tight line and some don’t.

I’d experiment with aiming it downward to see if you pick up more of the higher frequencies.

What center do you have?
