I run 5.1
B&W 805S + HTM4S powered by Emo XPA-3, Rythmik FV15HP, old polk S10's for rears, with an XT32 Onkyo 818. My sub sits between my FL and C. Planning on a second FV15HP within 6 months. Carpeted room, big fluffy sectional.
There's not a lot of options for acoustic placements in my modest open floor plan town home. I am thinking of hanging them on the front wall directly behind the FL and FR. Are these even the right kind of treatments for behind the mains? I know as bass traps they can be used in corner but I'm not looking to use them that way. I could only do front right corner, and lower 4 feet of rear right corner under a breakfast bar opening to the kitchen. First side wall reflection points are out of the question with this room+wife. I don't think I am putting anything on the ceiling but that is not completely out of the question.
Is this a worthy upgrade? If this is a worthy upgrade shouldn't I get a third to hang horizontally behind the center channel speaker with the other two vertically behind the front left and front right?
