Center speaker question
We are in the the process of finishing a living room renovation. We had our contractor install the TV above the fireplace (on a mount that will allow it to be pulled down to the proper viewing angle since we neither watch TV or use the fireplace that much). The problem is, that the contractor forgot to run speaker wire for a center speaker. I have (2) HDMI, (2), Cat 6 and (1) optical. I planned on using 1 HDMI from the Control 4 system, 1 Cat 6 to split apart for IR sensors as all of the electronics are in the basement, which leaves me with (1) HDMI, (1) Cat 6 and (1) optical. It seems like my current options are to (a) run a 4.1 system without the center, or (b) use the TV as a center (which most will say NO to). Do I have any other options? The room is a perfect rectangle with the TV in the center of the wide wall with a couch directly across from it and two chairs in the corners on the diagonal. All suggestions appreciated. Thanks!
