    I know that this may be quite akward, but what would be the best way to layout surround sound in this room (roughly, just by looking at it) so that someone on every sofa would experience front, center, surround and surround back audio somewhat evenly? I'm on holiday now so I am writing this via...

    I saw some similar topics but nothing that pinpointed this question. I am completing a 7.1 setup where I have the front 3 and sub. I need to add the 4 rears where 2 are on the wall and 2 are on the ceiling a few feet behind the wall location. I have to go with external, (not in wall) for the...

     Hi Everyone.   I am new to the world of surround sound but have always wanted a setup. As we are decorating our living room, I thought I would take the opportunity to install a 5.1 setup, as well as wall mount the tv.   Sadly the room is pretty compromised as you can see, its mainly...

    Hi Everyone, I currently moved into a new apartment and current trying to decide where to place my surround sound speakers. I have an ideal placement and a compromise placement with my fiance. The latter would have less wire raceway showing on the sides walls since there will be pictures and...

    Just outfitted my parents basement with 82ii along with rc 62ii and rs 52ii. The system is using a projector with a 106" screen. I have the center 16" away from the wall as well. The surrounds are slightly behind the listening position on the side wall. One question I have on surround...

    Hope i'm putting this in the right forum. I've moved into a new rented and furnished house and am not sure how to set up the surround sound. It's rented so i can't move the wall mounted plasma, the fixed shelf underneath it, the couches nor put in wall/ceiling speakers I've attached an...

    Building a home theater in a long 12x26 foot room. Seating position will be at about 14-15 feet from screen. There is a large window to the right of the seating position. I was planning on putting the rear surround in the ceiling. The side surround can either be at ear level but 5 feet in front...

    Hey all, I just got a new surround sound system and am not sure where I should position the speakers. I know they should ideally be equidistant from the primary viewing spot, but I don't have an ideal situation. The TV is in corner at the end of a loooong room, in a built-in hole in the wall...

    I need some advice from more than just myself as far as mounting the surround speakers in my living room. I have attached a rough schematic of our living room. Not fully understanding the purpose or science behind surround sound, I always thought they had to go right behind you, dolby.com...
