1" Silk Dome Tweeter: The Cambridge Audio SX-50 bookshelf loudspeakers

Placement: Ideally the speakers and listening position should be
located equal distances apart. The speakers should also be placed at ear level.
In addition, the speaker should be positioned at least 2" away from the back
wall. If the speakers are placed on a desk or close to a wall, the bass may
become too strong. The included foam inserts will reduce the bass output when
inserted into the speakers' ports.
Mounting Options: The Cambridge Audio SX-50 bookshelf
loudspeakers include 8 self-adhesive foam-feet (4 each) to simply place the
speakers securely on a desk, table, shelf, or speaker stand securely and safely.
The foam feet add approximately 0.125" to the height of the speakers. The optional PinPoint heavy duty side-grip wall-mounting bracket (121AM40B,
sold separately) can be used to wall mount the speakers.
