I'm going to be installing some in-wall Emotiva speakers in my home theater re-build.
Right now, I have a 5.1 setup with speakers slightly behind the listening area angled 45 degrees toward the middle of the sectional.
Unfortunately, with my wall situation, there's a window where normally I could have the SL/SR speakers right at ear level.
My only option is to have them about 2-3' in front of the main listening area. There is a section of the sectional that will be level with, but for the most part the listeners will be slightly behind it. The room overall is about 25' long and 13' wide.
I would then have the rears in the ceiling pointed toward the listening area (with adjustable tweeters) about 3' behind the listening area. Again, the ceiling is a necessity for the rears due to room shape challenges. There will be roughly 6' between the side surrounds and rear surrounds.
Will this be acceptable? Everything I've read says that the sides should be directly to the side of the listening area.
