I have a quick surround speaker question. My room is not super narrow, however there is a doorway just to the right (if you are looking at it) or the couch. It looks, well, like this:
Unfortunately, there are two problems here.
First, this is a high-traffic area and I do not want the speakers to get knocked over. So I am unable to really put them further out to the sides and considering putting them angled a bit behind the couch.
Second, with the couch being kind if high and full of pillows, there is the problem with the driver shooting into the fabric (arms a/o pillows) of the couch.
In effect, I am wondering if it pays to move the couch forward a bit and put the speakers at the rear edge of the couch on higher stands and just turn them down a bit with the receiver so they are more ambient and do not overpower the LCR speakers. My only concerns are that the speakers will still be pretty close to the listeners, and this will probably mean the tweeters will be above ear level with the drivers aiming right at the ears (when we sit in the couch our heads sit just above the back of the couch/pillows). Any advice?
