You don't want to use all center speakers or lay vertically oriented speakers on their sides, if you can help it, due to the sonic compromises of a horizontal oriented speaker. If you have enough space, you could do three mini monitors or two mini monitors and a center 1, if you don't.
Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!
