    Hi guys

    Got the Sony 1040 7.1 and Q Acoustics 7000i (5.1)

    I need some help deciding where to place my speakers. Initially i will be running 5.1 system and as with my previous setup i had the surrounds facing inwards towards seating poisitions.

    Is this correct best way ?

    Also i am running cable for additional 2 speakers to make it into a 7.1 (just incase). I am limited because Sofa is right against wall, however there is a ridge on back of sofa so was half thinking i could by some small speakers to rest on this facing upwards?

    If i went for 7.1 any other options looking at my pic? High up? I am not sure where they should go otherwise.
    (Poor picture but i put a square where i think the basic 5.1 speaker should go, same opposite side of wall (not in this picture) as im not at home to take a good pic with it all in...

    Thanks
