Hey guys, Im running Yamaha RX-V465 with Energy RC-10's as my FL FR C. They sound great!!! My question is if you guys can help me place my surround speakers. On the attachment I included a quick outline of how my bedroom looks. Fronts are hanged on the walls at around 4 1/2 Feet tweeters pointing to the X on the bed which is my seating of choice. The center is up straight under my LCD at around 4 ft. My bed is around 2 feet high which is why my speakers are placed kind of high. My question is where should I put the surrounds? Also should I get RC-10s' or is it worth the extra money and get two RC-R?

PLS help guys newbee learning of the exciting world of home audio!

Wow, I don't envy you figuring out your setup! I am trying to figure out mine and the room is pretty much square! I am sure someone here will offer up some suggestions for you soon though. Until then, the Sticky for setting up HT at the top might have something that could help.

I am dealing with a bad placement issue for my surrounds as well.


I decided to make them more like rears and mine will be asymmetrical. The left will be almost direct behind me and the right will be a good 7/8 feet out.


Although it is not idea maybe you could come up with something like this. Level and distance settings might make it work.

Actually ours doesn't look nearly as bad as mine.


Why not on or above the chimney and on the opposite wall.

You can play with them being either slightly in front of you or more behind you. You can't do the perfect placement but your really isn't that bad.

Should I buy Rc 10s for rears or is it worth getting Rc-r? I'm thinking of placing it on the chimney and having the other one custom hanged to be at the same angle. Also how high should my surrounds be RC10 or RC-R?
