I'm trying to figure out speaker placement with this room layout. I'll have 2 bookshelf speakers and a subwoofer. As you can see, the layout is pretty limiting, so I'm wondering if I can put the subwoofer in that wall recess to the right of the fireplace.

If not, any recommendations?

Do a sub crawl to find the best locations for your sub, and put the sub in the location that also addresses whatever placement or other limitations you have.

If it won't fit in the cubby under the screen, perhaps you could go nearfield and place it next to your sofa. There are plenty of wireless options for subs, so don't let cabling (or lack thereof) deter you.

You're going to think I'm an idiot, but what about that space to the left of the TV where the flower is? My limited experience is that the sub actually enhances and enlarges the bass sound coming out of the speakers, and you don't always hear the sub itself. Try it, you may like it.

What have you got to lose? (other than your wife having to go trial for murdering you for trying to put that sub up there)

You may, but it might not work well there. Worth a shot.
