Home Theater Speaker Placement Help

Hello!
Long time reader, first time poster. This site has been an amazing source of information and I have read a lot about speaker placement. I thought I would post a picture of my floor plan and see if I am on the right track. I was at first happy with 5.1, then thought I might be able to do 7.1 - so I was not sure about the placement of the surrounds. Would this be an ok placement for 7.1? Any other thoughts? I have been buying speakers when I get a deal and so far have Klipsch RP-450C, RP-280F (2), R-41M (2, surrounds), R-14S (2, surrounds), R-120SW. Any help would be appreciated! The ceiling height is about 8'. If you need any other info - let me know.
Thanks!

You need to move everything to the right to get you seats away from the side wall - otherwise all the people sitting there will hear is the speaker in their ear


Position it all centrally L to R then you will be just about perfect. Just move the SBR to the other side of the door way and the SBL forward to line up with SBR, Better to have them both slightly forward of rear seats than at different positions. nd if you do that you could also move the SL and SR slightly forward too.


Or you could mount SBR above the door and SBL to match and point them down if possible.


Unfortunately that room design is a major compromise for 7.1

Try to centre the seating across room width for a symmetrical soundstage. Your room is 16' wide and your seating is 11' wide, leaving you plenty of room for aisles on either side.
