I have read about a rule regarding speakers placement - they should not be placed exactly half the distance from the celling ( measuring from the subwoofer) -
My assumption is that if there is an acoustic cloud above this is not considered the " new" celling and it is OK to place them half the distance floor and acoustic cloud as long as they are not placed half way between the actual celling and the floor - Is this correct?
Yes, the rigid ceiling above is where low frequency reflections occur, so that's where you'll measure from. Also, the ideal speaker height puts the tweeters at ear level, so that's another consideration. Sometimes it makes sense to put speakers upside down, if that gets the cabinet at a better location for bass and keeps the tweeters aligned with your ears. In the end, the only way to know for sure where is best is to measure as you experiment.
