    They're designed to aim down when installed above seated ear level. Midwoofer-up, using either the keyholes or VESA brackets. The grilles can flip to keep the name badge on the bottom edge.

    Exactly.

      What would be the recommended use for the woofer down position:

      I currently use this mounting gear for my surrounds:

      They are actually on the rear wall behind the couch, but as the couch is fairly close I angle them inwards a bit.
      Was also wondering if they can work side sitted like this but thinking tweeter orientation could be an issue:

        I'm betting that the tweeter could be rotated just like on the A2.4

          The A4.5 tweeter can rotate 90 degrees and the speaker can then be flown horizontally.

            Great. Thanks for all the info!
            I don't think it was mentioned, what's the weight of a single A4.5?

                Hi Jon, I just noticed that the A4.5 is available for pre-order. I don't see how to make the purchase though. Please let me know how to give you some money. Thanks.

                    Really debating these, shame there is no white option for the WAF. Wonder if I could vinyl wrap them? Not a ding on Chane, there really are not a lot of white options out there unfortunately. Still love my 1.4+2.4 setup.
