I have read through countless threads, and

still can't determine the best speakers to use for my

surround channels and exactly where to locate them. Part

of the problem is that I haven't come across a configuration

that resembles mine exactly.


Details of my set-up:


o 5.1 DolbyDigital/DTS using core audio from BluRay

o Room dimensions are 15' wide x 20' long x 8' tall

o Front speakers are 9' apart on 15' wide wall

o Front left and front right are Proac Tablette 50
o Listening position is 14' from front wall, 6' from rear wall

o Due to room layout, surround speakers must be mounted on

rear wall


o Rear channels will be used primarily for movies, and

very rarely for music (SACD, etc)


I currently have in-wall wiring run to the rear wall. Two

single-gang boxes contain the wire, one for the left surround

and the other for the right surround. Each of these boxes is

located 7' high and 3' in from each corner. I am willing to

relocate these boxes if it will make a substantial difference,

but they must remain on rear wall.


Please advise as to which type of speaker (monopole, dipole,

bipole, other?) would work best, the preferred mounting

location, and the direction the speakers should be pointing.


Thanks in advance.

I vote for facing out, with a little bit of toe-in to the listening position, and monopole.

Dipole/bipole should also work as well, although I have not try. QS8 from axiom seems to be pretty good.

I don't have pics -- it's a fairly straightforward rectangular room that

is 15' x 20' with the fronts on the 15' wall. Due to some windows and

return vent locations, I cannot mount the surrounds on the side walls.
