laser aligning 1Next up is to mount the LCR speakers and align them.  After reading this review, I purchased the Checkpoint Tools Sound Alignment System.  The tool was endorsed by both my speaker manufacturer, M&K Sound, and THX. The M&K S-150THX front channels are known to have a narrow vertical dispersion for the upper frequencies and it is important to aim them as precisely as possible.
laser aligning 2The "target" is set up on the centerline of the center speaker which is also the centerline of the middle seats.  The tripod is on the second row riser, slightly higher than the "halfway" height between the first row ears and the second row ears.
