I have read a lot of the ARC and placement. It seems like to most people keep telling me that the ARC should be below the TV. But I can't really understand why?
My TV (65”) is put on the wall 16 inch from the floor, the sofa is on the same hight so I get the eye view in center of the screen. 5 inch above the TV I have a sonos playbar. It works very well.
Now I'm considering the ARC instead of the playbar but is thinking about the placement.
Currently I have a media bench below the TV and drilled holes above the tv for the playbar to hide the cables inside the wall.
I was hoping that I could use the same position for the ARC or I will need to remove the bench and “repair” the holes in the wall.
The room is 8 foot high.
