Morning all,

I'm looking to the hive mind here for an opinion on how best to mount my surround dipoles (they are Paradigm). I've attached a quick diragram of my room layout with the dilema:


The big brown rectangle is the couch. It's firm against the back wall with the projector right above it on a shelf mount. The couch is around 8' or so from the (overhead) right wall BUT from the left wall, it's huge..around 20' or so. So putting a dipole on the right side is pretty well no problem but for the left...any ideas? The best I can come up with so far is to have some kind of mount protroding from the wall (almost shelf like) or a stand on the left side.


The 2 black squares in front and just to the side of the couch are the posts that hold up the house (this is a basement). I'd almost considered mounting the dipoles on there but figured having them ahead of the listener would probably sound a bit pants.


Many thanks in advance for any advice.


D

Sometimes your ears, not your eyes, are the best judge. I would try them on the left and right walls. I know the left is way far, but you may be suprised that it sounds ok. Adjust your distances in your reciever and try it.

Interesting...running the wire over there will be a pain but it could be a possible solution. Any other opinions?
