Surround Speaker Position In This Room - In wall or in ceiling?
I am looking for advice on rear surround speaker placement. I am using Definitive Technology in wall speakers for this 5.1 system. Fronts are positioned behind acoustically transparent screen.
I am using 2 x UIW RSSII Bipolar speakers for my surrounds. --> http://www.definitivetech.com/products/uiw-rss-ii
Please take a look at the attached drawing.
I have two options.
Option 1 - Have the speakers about 24" above ear level on the left and right wall but it would have to be right up against the back wall due to the window and also the curtains from both windows may get in the way a little.
Option 2 - Have the speakers in the ceiling with more flexibility for positioning.
I was leaning towards putting them in the ceiling because I have heard that this provides a more atmospheric sound across a larger seating area.
I would appreciate any advice, I would especially be interesting in hearing from people who have put their surrounds in the ceiling and how this compares to the standard placement.
