7.1 or 5.1
Please see the attached room layout which is roughly to scale/proportion. The room is roughly 11' wide by 20' long.
I am debating whether I should go 7.1 to benefit the primary seating position (the front row). It would seem that the rear two speakers would not benefit the rear row since there will be very little room between the seat and the rear wall.
Would optimizing for the front row with 7.1 ruin the listening experience for those in the rear row when there's a full house?
