Hello all lurker here,
I have just recently purchased my first HT setup and am looking for advice on the surround placement for my 5.1 setup.Components:
Pioneer FS51 FL/FR
Pioneer C21 C
Pioner BS21 RL/RR
My living room in my apartment is approx 14 x 15, cant move the tv or couch ect, the only thing I can move is the placement of the surround speakers.
Basically, my seating postion/couch is not "centered" on the back wall - it is centered on the tv. Therefore the side walls are unequal distances apart. Approx 6.75 ft vs 9 ft. I know the reciever can correct for distance differences but I wanted to see which would be the preferred installation location.Installed on the side walls facing each other.
The pros to this is that it would look cleaner, but the speakers would be placed unequal distances from center listening position. Additionally, would there be any series negative effects of the speakers basically being installed very close to the corners of the living space?Installed on the back wall, equidistant and facing each other.
The pros would be that it is equal spacing, but would be uglier.
Is there a preferred option that would offer "superier/noticable" sound differences? Or is this system not good enough/sound differences so low that it wouldnt matter in either case?
Any advice would be appreciated.
