I am having trouble figuring out where to put my 5.1 surrounds in my new apartment. The apartment has an amazing view and the space is set up to take maximum advantage of this, but unfortunately that puts some weird constraints on the theater setup. Here is my terrible Paint attempt to draw the layout.
As you can see, the couch is off center, with only one or maybe two if you squish good spots in front of the TV. The front speakers are only at about a 25 degree angle, so not awesome but ok for me. My question is where to put the surround speakers. As far as I can figure out my options are:
1) Putting them on the walls show with red stars would result in one being about half the distance of the other. I know the receiver can try to autocorrect for this, but I'm guessing it's still going to sound pretty weird.
2) On the ceiling to get even spacing. Like I said, I'm in an apartment so I don't really know how to attach something to the ceiling but even if I could where would I put them and how should they be angled? Any recommendations on fasteners to use?
3) Put one on the wall and the other freestanding at the far end of the couch. This would give distances of 4.5' and 5.5', so pretty similar, but because you have to get to the couch from the far side (there is other furniture not shown in the picture) I'm worried about the walking traffic knocking over the speaker. I don't have a stand so I would probably have to make one.
If it matters I have what I'd call a good low end setup, where my surrounds are Pinnacle S-FIT SAT 150s and the receiver is an Onkyo HT-RC260
I hope I put this in the correct forum, and thanks so much for any help!
