Hello folks,
I'm setting speakers in my condo and I'd like some advice regarding back speakers.

I have 3 pairs of Polk RC85i and I am (will be using) them all of the channels.
What would you suggest me to put the back speakers? Check attached photo of the room. It appears I have 3 options:

RED - Side walls (very small on the right side, though)
GREEN - High by the vaulted ceiling
YELLOW - Right by the person's ears


In addition, since RC85i's are only sold in pairs, I have an extra one (came with the center speakers). Should I just plugged it as a surround back speaker? The 6th channel? Or that's not worth it?

Thank you so much!!!

Hi. Given the speakers are bookshelves I think the red positions would be best for surround ambiance as your photo appears to show the red circles are in corners. It will give me presence and dispersion. Yellow is too close to listener - I used that positioning once and was not very enveloping unless perhaps you had di or tri-pole surrounds.
Hope that helps!

Thanks!
However, the speakers are in-wall, not bookshelf.
But I agree with you. Yellow is too close.
