Remodeling Home Theater - please help on speaker choice and location
I am remodeling an existing home theater room. Currently have 5.1 system driven by Denon AVR (that will be replaced) with Boston VR1 L/R/C and matching Boston sub and Focal Chorus LS/RS (on wall). I haven't decided on which AVR yet, but leaning toward 7.2 system. Can you help me decide whether there is any benefit in going to a 7.2 system, and if so, what rear surround speakers I should purchase and where to locate them? Attached are photos of existing back wall showing location of Focal speakers on side wall. My back row seats are against the rear wall. Also attached is screen view of the layout of new room looking from the screen wall to the rear wall. The center blue box on the rear wall is a placeholder for the projector. The blue boxes on left and right of the rear wall are place holders for the LRS and RRS speakers. These new speakers can be in-wall, on-wall, or mounted in- or on-soffit that will be installed along the ceiling to hold can lights. Thanks for any comments!
