another rear surround speaker placement

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have 5.1 surround w/ SVS speakers (all bookshelf). I am able to adjust speaker distance, etc.
Searched threads and THX, etc. The living room is odd shape w/ open kitchen to left and stairs to right.

I plan on placing the SR on the (side) stair wall facing the couch while not sure of SL. Don't know if should a) place it right to the left of the couch on back wall tilted to couch. Or b) on the far Left wall facing the couch; so surrounds facing each other. (SR - 1ft from couch: SL 5-6' from couch)
Thanks in advance!

Facing tv. from seating position


Seating position Couch centered in front of tv.

Not many options in your situation. I would place the surround speakers in the back tri-corners of the room (where the back corners meet the ceiling), pointing roughly towards the main listening position. The multiple reflective surfaces in the tri-corners will help with envelopment; the wide spread will help maintain left-vs-right stereo separation in the surround field.

Top corners, right? not on the corners 1ft above hearing level?
thanks

Is your ceiling "1ft above hearing level"?
