Speaker Placement Conundrum
So I laid out my columns in my theater last night. I did use the Erskine Group layout service. I already had my riser built, probably should have done the service first but it is what it is at this point. Due to my door location (not ideal but it made sense for the kitchenette on the other side) my riser is a bit different. In order to use columns I have to move the columns about 6-10 inches different than what the layout calls for. If I just get some angled speakers and mount them to the walls I can place them exactly where the plans says they should be. What do you think I should do? The columns get a bit to close to my door and a step if I do it exactly as called for. I think I would like the columns but do not want to do it if it compromises the sound to much. In my head 6-10 inches really cannot matter that much for surround speakers but what are your thoughts? Wow I am rambling.
A picture might explain it better. According to the plan the left surround column should be about 6 inches further to the right and the left column should be 6" further to the left. As you can see I have a door and a step to deal with. They both are shrinking my walking space.
