5.1 - Rear Speaker Placement Query


Standard Member
I've got a rather modest home entertainment setup.

I've got some 5.1 speakers (Logitech Z5500 - don't laugh), but I've never got round to putting the rear speakers up.

And a picture facing backwards showing the main sofa - theres not a lot of wall space to spread the speakers apart with:
