I am attaching some pics of the right and left side of the room as well as the rear of the room. Once the rear seats are reclined they are very close to rear wall. My choices seem to be if the MT-110SR are the right speaker for this application:
1. Do nothing as the 5.2.4 sounds really good. The surrounds are in the back of the room and not side walls
2. Add another pair of MT-110SR for the side walls and leave the existing ones to be used as surround back
2. Move the PSA to the side walls and add SVS prime elevations for surround back duty. Cheapest option
So the question really is what kind of off-axis response does the 110SR have as my angle is likely 90-120 degrees and is the right speaker for this application or should I look at something like a SVS ultra with dual baffles pointed to the front and back rows?
I have tried to mark when the speaker would in the first two pics and the angle to the seat roughly
Right side of room
Left side of room
Rear of room
Bipole or Omnipolar speakers would work the best as the sound is diffuse and will have more area coverage.
