In-Wall Surrounds : Installation Height


I have purchased In-Wall surround speakers.  I have a template to cut the hole, but it does not say how high up to mount the speakers.

Installing Paradigm CI Elite E80-IW surrounds.

If anyone has experience with these please advise on height from floor to mount them.

Check out this article on speaker placements in a home theater setup,

Hope this helps! 
I have two systems with in-wall surrounds. Each has different ceiling heights as well as one room having an open wall to the adjacent room. In both installs the surrounds are placed at 3/4 of the way up from the floor, with the tweeter at about 2 feet down from the ceiling. Sound is full and cohesive throughout pans on HT and music tracks.
the crutchfield says 1-2 feet above ear level.  I assume that is a sitting ear level.  Thanks Monkey i think that's what we will target.

Yes, in both instances I managed to end up with the middle of a dipolar array of tweeters falling at 24" from the ceiling, and 24" from ear level. However with your Paradigm CI Elite E80-IW surrounds being monopole this should also translate.
About a foot or two MAX above ear level.  Especially if you plan on doing any Atmos height speakers as well.
I have a 5.1.4 in-wall system all Bowers & Wilkins speakers and I have my tweeters to both front LCR and surrounds at ear level and it sounds great.  If you plan on doing Atmos in the white paper posted on Dolby website it says tweeters should be at ear level unless you have multiple rows with a raiser than a foot higher to compensate for.
