The best tool for checking the ability of your stereo set-up concerning the creation of “phantom height sound images” is the LEDR test: https://www.audiocheck.net/audiotests_ledr.php . Only when you have acoustically treated the floor and ceiling you will get a correct image. Also tilting your head forwards or backwards will reveal interesting effects while listening to these test tracks! Highly recommended!
Catching it on YouTube.
Did you really say you were going to talk about height in depth? 🙂

Sorry guys! Just got up to see this.
When I setup my first system 30 years ago in my dedicated room, I did not find that speaker setup had any affect on soundstage height. It was limited to the physical height of the speakers. Once I added a Shunmook Mpingo disc array to the sidewalls and front wall, the soundstage width and height improved radically. I’ve refined the speaker positioning over the years to optimize the soundstage size.
There are a number of newer tweaks available that claim to do the same thing, however I have never heard these.
Paul, Peter Snell’s Model 1 is an example of a hifi speaker with the tweeter on the bottom.
In fact, the tweeter is at floor level in the front and facing forward. The result is an interesting listen: open and wide.
The flip down front panel did three things while I had a pair: it reflected the speaker in the event you were on a rug, it folded up to prevent the speakers from being kicked in by accident, and it set itself up for an extremely low wife acceptance factor (WAF).
