    Hi !

    I am planning to buy the Altek Lansing Vs 4121

    http://www.alteclansing.com/vs4121-pc-computer-speakers.html

    I do not have space in lower portion of the computer table , the max height is 9" and the woofer height is approx 13".

    Can I tilt the woofer 90 degrees to the side so that it fits well ?
    Will there be any performance hit, I am not an audiophile,so this is a general question can woofers be tilted ?

    Most of the woofers of Altek Lansing are pretty tall.

    What I meant was can I make the woofer lie down on its side.

    Jack H thanks for the reply, does this apply to satellites as well ?

    Yeah, you can tilt the woofer to its side and I don't think there will be any performance hits.

    Its based entirely on air flow. As long as there is still air movement behind and in front of the woofer then there will not be an impact to audio.

    To allow air to move. The more air a speaker moves the loader it is, thats why a 12 inch is louder than a 8 inch at a given wattage.
