I'm having a lot of difficulty with surround speaker placement and could really use your help. Most of the following pictures are annotated, so you may need to click on the images to read them.
I *was* going to go with two KS-525-THX
's directly opposite each other, like so:
However, after working with my interior designer, we really want the room to be laid out like this:
Since the couch will be right up against that bottom wall, I think wall mounting a speaker on that angled wall (picture #1) probably wouldn't work because it would practically place it in someone's ear.
The next thought was maybe to try in-ceiling with a pair of KS-7502-THX
However, I don't think that'll work either because they'd have to be fairly close together and probably wouldn't support the majority of the seating very well.
So, now I'm debating if I should stick with the KS-525-THX
's, but place them on the wall *behind* the seating area instead:
I could even place them higher on the wall and angle them downwards if needed.
One additional thing to note is that there is a stairway between the seating area and the wall:
Is there a way to make any of these options work? Are there other ideas I haven't presented yet?
Thank you bunches.
