I need help before the Superbowl Comes!!!


I have a big room (maybe 25x25) with 2 bipoles on the side and I need to know if I should add one more bipole in the center. I also want to make sure it looks good with three speakers or if it would it look better with a picture in the center.




Thanks for the help.

Picture will certainly look better than most speakers, but you won't get any audio/sound from them ...
Just kidding.


What else you have in your setup?


Obviously you will have front 3 speakers and they will do much of the work for filling the room. From your seating arrangement it seems that you can do a 7.1 setup too, as there is enough space behind the listening position. Take a look at the following image from Dolby for speaker placement guideline

Looking at the pic you posted, those bipoles look like they are behind the listening area, not at the sides. Are you able to place surround speakers directly to the sides of the listening area?

Well... that's not entirely true anymore.

In that case, staying with the current setup will perhaps be better. Adding more speakers in the rear will not improve your surround experience.


What speakers you have in fronts and surrounds (can't make out anything from the picture)? Which receiver/amp you have?


You may end up playing them louder than normal, so think about your receiver/amps too. If necessary and if your receiver has pre-outs for amp, you can add an external amp temporarily.
