Speaker Placement

I am finishing my basement and adding a home theater. The screen will be 150"-160". I am shooting for a 7.1.4 sound system. I need to finalize my speaker placement so that i can run wire before hanging drywall. What do you guys think about my speaker placement?

Hey mate, based on my calcs - those L and R speakers are too close to the centre - I have the spec at 15% (the thinner inner lines on the pic)... let me know where you're getting the 11.28 from - I'm not familiar with that.

Based on the attachment from the Dolby site, it is recommended to run the L & R speakers between 22 & 30 degrees from the MLP, so 11 is a bit on the narrow side. Not knowing your plans for the areas adjacent to your theater makes it difficult for further recommendations.
