I need to order some seating for my home theater and have decide on the Fusion Jives. I have talked to Roman a bit and would like some opinions on which seating configuration would work best.
My dilemma is the amount of seats (2 rows), I know I am good with 3 seats per row, but I really want to have 4 seats in the front row so that when another couple comes over we aren't split up between front and back rows. I know 4 seats will fit, but I am concerned about the viewing angles to the screen from the far sides. So here's my seating situation, hope I can show this accurately. Please ignore the mess, still a WIP :O
This is the view from the wall to my rack, I have 152 inches total
Image showing the current seating , 3 seats, currently around 29 inches from the wall
Current spacing from the rack,
This is showing were the edge of the 4 curved seating would end for 139 inches (115 + 24 (isle) ), my concern here is the angle to the screen, i would be able to move back towards the other wall maybe 4 inches though to leave a 24" isle
This is showing the edge for 4 straight at 133 inches (109 + 24 (isle)), same concerns here as far as angle to the screen, being way off to the side.
The seating would be about 9.5 to 10ft back (from eyes) to a current 100" screen which would leave about 6 or so feet for a second row. The screen is 87 inches wide, so at 109 and 114 inches on the chair configurations there is 22 inches and 27 inches of space where the seating is outside the screen area. I figure cut that in half and cut 4 inches for the armrest means the seating is ending around 7 - 9 inches on the right or left of the screen. Based on this I dont know whether it would be very comfortable for the viewers on the edges. Any help would be appreciated, the pictures dont show the viewing angles very well
