" if it works " or "it should work" are not things I want to hear when I am spending tens of thousands of dollars. The risk of it failing seem to far outweigh the benefit.I asked about this in my build thread, but I didn't get a very clear answer, so I thought it would be a good idea to raise this question specifically in its own thread.
The current layout of my room is mostly rectangular, but with a hallway going out the south (right) side and a wall on the southeast (top-right) side that kind of juts in:

The theater designer I'm working with said that trapezoidal rooms can either work terribly or perfectly--there's rarely anything in between. They worked it up and ran the numbers and concluded that it should work. Here's the current top down view:

What are your thoughts on this? It was originally my idea, so I'm fine with it from an aesthetics perspective. My theater designer said that it should work, but I'm a little worried about going with such an unconventional layout. Am I just creating new problems that room treatments will have to try and fix?
Rectangular rooms with the screen on the short wall produce reliable sound waves that can easily be equalized with audio calibration equipment and room treatments. I would keep things simple IMHO.
