High couch back - can i go 7.1, pic included or go Heights?
-We just got a new couch, the two sides recline - but the middle doesn't as you can see in the picture.
-i will be sitting in the middle for movies. Kind of sucks how close the surrounds are now but we work with what we have. If i sit in the left seat all i can hear is the left surround, and same with the far right seat...all i can hear is the right surround loud. Is there anything i can actually do about this? When i sit in the middle its perfect...Good thing thing my wife doesn't care.
-Can i do 7.1? When the left and right seats are reclined the "back surrounds" would be fine...but that middle seat can't go down. The back surrounds should be aiming at the middle and it would hit the back of the couch. The tweeter and the woofer are even with the back, and it wouldn't go over the couch.
Is 7.1 a good option for me? I could try front heights but i'm afraid i would be disappointed after all the mounting and holes....or is it worth it? I do have a lot of Atmos movies.
Back surrounds or go front height? I can't do ceiling at all...wife has been pretty good allowing this set up, but said no way to ceiling.
Edit - i couldn't do Heights to the left or right, they would need to be at the front.
