I wanted to get your advice re. placement of my center speaker (Mirage OMD-C1). There's a fireplace in the center of the room where the speaker would normally go. My options are to either place the speaker about 3 feet to the right of the central axis, which would place it only ~2 ft from the right speaker (OMD-15), or to mount it on the ceiling (8.5ft high), a few inches from the front wall and right above the projector screen. Note that my room is 19(l)x14(w) ft, and main sitting location is about 10 ft from the front wall.
The first option would keep the speaker at ear level, but I'm worried about the sound being too shifted to the right (and the center and right speaker being too close together). The second option would keep the speaker centered, but the speaker would be placed at an angle and about 5 ft above ear level.
(Note that I'll be using a pair of OMD-5's as surrounds.)
Also note that I have a Denon AVR-991 receiver with Audyssey MultEQ XT, which will hopefully help with the imperfect placement.
Thanks for your advice!
