Place bookshelf speaker on its side?

Reader Question:
Is it a big no-no to place a bookshelf speaker on its side? I have a cabinet space that does not allow me to fit the speaker in vertically.

Answer
For critial listening the speakers should always be positioned in the same manner. In genearl speakers are best placed at the listening level of the listener. See speaker placement article. So if you have one speaker on its side with the tweeter facing "out" the other speaker should be the same. If there is a center channel either way will do. In most cases you'll not notice it.
