I am sure this is not an easy question to answer, but what are the rules of thumb to design your theater to minimize impacts of dead zones? I have a rectangular room 13' x 22'. my screen in roughly 2' 4" from the back wall and on a false wall. My first listening area is 13' from the screen. The projector is mounted at 19'6" from the false wall (not that this matters with audio).

Based on my room the center of the room is approximately 4' in front of the listener. Should I be ok? To be more precise the wall with the projector has 3' champhers in them, so the room is really 5 sided and not square.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Chip

There are many variables involved, so it is very difficult to answer your question. We don't have any idea of where the sub(s) is/are placed in the room, and rooms that are not completely rectangular will result in different modes for the varying dimensions. In other words, there is not enough information to go on to give you an honest opinion.

SMB,

As I was typing I almost knew the answer. Thanks for responding. When I get the layout 95% complete I will post it and hopefully that will help.
