Question Help setting bedroom home theature

I was wonder to choose between back surround or front height configuration. My room is medium sized and the layout is attached for better understanding. The equipment is as follows:


1) Marantz sr5009
2) klipsch sw-115(placed in front )
3) Polk audio tsx 440(fronts)
4)Polk audio tsx 220(rare speakers)
5)Polk audio tsx 110(front height or back surround)
6)Polk audio tsx 150c(center channel)
7) Samsung 46h6200 LED


this is the configuration that I would prefer, the room is tiled with bricked walls(concrete). my back surrounds will be placed on the wall behind the bed but there is no enough space therefore I plan to placed them in the middle of the back wall tilted downwards at an anger of 60deg or more.(elevated from listening position)

please give me a good advice by which I shall experience best sound quality.

You'll probably want room treatments to get really good sound in the room. That said, why set this up in the bedroom. The research on the topic says that TV/s in the bedroom lead to less sleep and, ahh, less adult activity.

@zgeneral thnx for the reply first of all... I choose the bedroom as me short of rooms !! on the other hand I do plan for room treatements ( carpet & sound proofing panels in the future) for now me concerned if I should opt for front height or back surround ?? as I don't have space behind the bed therefore I would have to mound it 3 to 5 feet above the sitting position

You might want to consider front wides looks like he might build a fit him and it will give you a better effect than Heights

It is your house? Apartment? If a house, you can put the surrounds in the ceiling and just spread them out a bit. You just wire through the walls. It all depends on how far you want to take this.

@zgeneral
Keeping in mind the current equipment.. What should i opt for.. Front height/wide or back surround.. As no space behind bed therefore would have to mount close to seeling or just instrall in front !!

What would u go for having such a setup and room??

Sorry I missed this, just your room looked like it might accommodate wides quite nicely, but if your AVR does not support then it is a moot point.

You would want the surrounds really. The front speakers can handle the sounds that should be coming from that direction.
