New Construction HT Speaker Location
Building a new house and looking for some advice on 5.2.4 or 7.2.4 speaker / subwoofer placement and type in a new build (room layout attached). Here are my thoughts:
1. Here is the easy part... 77" TV on top wall with either 3 higher end LCR in-wall or freestanding L/R + matching center
2. Here is where is gets tricky... I'm struggling with the side surrounds in a 7.2.4 setup as the closet on the right is really throwing this off. I think I may be able to shrink the closest size a bit and put an in-wall surround on right side then on the other side of the room to the left of that window. Then I could put two rear in-wall surrounds on the bottom walls before they start arching upward
3. Instead of the above, should I scrap the 7 speaker idea and put in-wall speakers in rear at ear level or on wall surrounds and stick with a 5.2.4 plan
4. One other idea I had is getting a sealed subwoofer (possibly the SVS 4000) and building a recessed enclosure into the wall for this to streamline aesthetics. Any issues with this?
I know there is a lot of things here, but any thoughts / suggestions would be appreciated. If someone has a better idea for ideal layout, would love to hear it as it is a unique space
