I posted this in the audio theory section but there isn't as much traffic over there. Wanted to see if anyone here has any thoughts. I have seen threads on here about this but are usually directed towards theaters having multiple rows of seats.

I am increasing the size of my HT and am wondering about side surrounds.
The room will be 30L x 20W and only 1 seat. It will almost never have more than 1 listener/viewer.

Is there an advantage to 2 sets of side surrounds? They would be run thru a MiniDSP for eq/delay to external amp (of course).
I will be using a Denon 4311 and have heights and wides as well as back.

Can this create a better surround field? Of course rear surrounds are also included.

Thanks for any help,

It definitely works wonderfully for me. I don't use any electronic delays, just shorter distance to ears from the frontmost pair, they share the same signal. I'm even using three, not two.

Is this with a single seat or row or multiple?

I found a lot of good info in another thread by accident that I hadn't seen before.
