11'x11'x6'6" room setup

Hey looking for help new to home theatre.

A 7.1.4 set-up means you use 4 surround speakers and 4 height speakers. The reason to use 4 surround speakers is to have side-vs-rear separation in the surround field. That's not going to happen when your seating is 1' from the back wall. Not enough space behind you. The reason to use 4 height speakers is to have front-vs-back separation overhead. That's not going to happen when your seating is 1' from the back wall. Not enough space behind you. If you can move your seating forward so that the listeners' ears are 1/3 room length from the back wall, it will help give you smoother frequency response (fewer/smaller peaks & dips) AND provide enough space behind you for a 7.1.4 set-up to be effective.
