Starting to wire my home theater room. Had an original plan to mount my projector screen on one wall but it doesnt fit. So now I have to mount it over my sliding glass door. Now I dont know how to do my center..can I hang it at an angle on the ceiling? All my speakers are focal. I have 4 towers...1 center and 4 bookshelves for a total of 9...but I only have a 7.2 receiver so I am going to sell off 2 speakers...


Where should I place the other 4 speakers for a 7.2 system...is it 2 on the side walls a few feet in front of where I sit and then 2 more behind me?


if u need more details please let me know .








thanks

I don't think you will like this, but have you considered a smaller screen that will fit on another wall?


No matter how you slice it your center channel mounted on the ceiling is going to be an issue. If you have to go this route, then you will want to angle it as much as you can so it points to the seating position, but I suspect you may still have imaging issues (dialogue and audio sounding like it is coming from above you, not at you).

I would get a smaller screen and move away from the glass door.

Poor sound radiation with a good picture, can be annoying.

The surrounds should be directly to the sides of the viewers, and maybe very slightly behind if anything, but not in front. The back surrounds should be behind the viewers, spaced apart from each other and somewhat from the side walls if possible.

I concur, and if you end up making this overall positive trade-off, then I would recommend using one of your extra towers as the center speaker if it would fit under the screen. You don't HAVE to, but if your center is of the typical horizontal two-way MTM configuration, then a tower would have superior performance for viewers sitting to the sides of the center (horizontal off-axis dispersion). You'll probably also want to toe in the left & right front speakers if they're going to be near any side walls.

I found a way to make the screen fit on the wall without the door.(the pic that says projector screen doesnt fit is where i made it fit.) ..I have 9 focal speakers so I need to get rid of 2....which should I sell..


4 714v towers............................. (two up front and 2 as sides?)

1 cc700 center..............................center of course

806v bookshelves........................sell these?

705v bookshelves....................use these as rear surrounds?


all are chorus line.


My sub is an outlaw lmf+ where should I place this?

Are you able to hear the 714 towers as side surrounds - are you blocking

the midrange and tweeter dispersion pattern. If they can radiate OK, then

you are fine. If not, then maybe sell them. I think that I would sell the 705

before the 806, unless you can get good money for it.
