I've just purchased a new home and need help with speaker placement. I have a 75" Samsung that I'll be hanging above the fireplace. The tv is 39.6 inches tall and the space between the mantle and the vaulted ceiling is 40". There is no room to put a center channel above or below the tv without mounting the speaker on the ceiling (don't like). I have the Boston Acoustics A 2310 5.1 speaker package (bookshelf speakers). I had a couple ideas, but not sure whats best. First idea was to buy two center channel speakers and mount them to the right and left of the tv, then mount the front left and right speakers further to the right and left. I've heard of doing a phantom center but wasn't sure how that would sound since the speakers are small. Another thought I had was to buy nice floor standing speakers and do a phantom center channel with hopes that more speakers in the floor standing model might help with the sound.
