I have a spatial/directional problem for your consideration...

Inside the north wall of my home I have a pull down movie screen. Inside the south wall of the same house I have a TV and a stereo receiver/amp. Each of the four corners has a speaker. The TV and my movie projectors are both connectable to stereo sound. [Smile]

We paid some guys a ton of money to bash down the walls here: it's one big room now. (hope the ceiling stays up!)

OK, now I am facing south and my left speaker channel is in the east, my right is in the west. Now I turn around and look at the movie screen and the Left channel is still connected to the East speaker but now that speaker is on my Right! [Confused]

As far as I can tell the best solution when facing North is to connect movie left to amplifier right and movie right to amplifier left. [Eek!]

So Left hand music and video tracks will now come out of the northern right hand speaker, but right hand movie tracks will come out of the right right hand speaker as they should...

Is this Right?! (or LEFT?!) [Embarrassed]

I should talk to my son: he's left handed, maybe this will make sense to him!

Excuse me...think I'll go lie down...I feel dizzy! [Wink]

(Sounds like one screen too many!)

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...

First of all the south shall rise again!

Doesn't your amp have a setting for your speakers? Mine has a test to set the sound level and speaker location without having to change wires.

Hey Pat,

The rights and lefts are all correctly connected, the issue is that right and left change with the direction the observer is facing!

I may have no choice but to invoke Port and Starboard!

AVAST!!, Ye Viewers!

Seems like a good time for a print of "Master and Commander", but what would I do if they turned the Ship around?

Ah, now I understand. Ok so all you have to do is turn around, this reverses the direction. Then turn around again...wallla! All is back to normal. Glad I could help! [Confused]

Then again I didn't mention that I'm adding a fifth speaker along the east wall that will carry only movie sound and is a blend of both left and right...

Does anybody have a Tylenol?

Hay Steve-- Just wait 12 hours. The rotation of the earth will solve the problem. I think the quote is "Jack left port" Or you could add speakers all the way around. SURROUND SOUND !!

-and of course someone named "Wright" just had to show up!

Is there anything Left?

(Hi Bruce, welcome to Audio Satire! Pull up a speaker! This is what Electrical Engineers do for laughs!)
