So, I'm working on finishing the plans for my home office/ studio/ home theater but am running into a few problems. My room will be 12' by 13' with a 7' ceiling.
My main issue is there will be two main listening positions, one towards the front when I'm sitting at my desk playing games, listening to music, or working. I'm not worried about this spot.
The problem comes with my back row. I want two seats and a small table/enclosure in the back. For proper fitting to view the 94" screen as well as just room, they will be against the back wall which is a bookshelf. I'm worried about having my rear surrounds on the shelves, not feeling like that will be enough distance behind the two seats to get good surround.
Is there a good solution to this other than trying to move the seats? Because they can't really move too much forward due to the size of the screen.
These spots will mostly be for movies and games via PS3, etc.
Would dipole speakers be an option? What would be best short of totally re-doing my room?
