5.1 Speaker Setup for Games Room for Corner TV


Novice Member

I got an extension to the house and trying to work out is the best setup for my games room.

I have attached a picture of my setup. Now the TV and corner sofa need to remain in their current location. The existing setup I have a Bose Cinemate 15. I want a setup with a bit more presence.

If I get a 5.1 Surround sound system, how do you suggest I place the speakers? The room is pretty large, so I'm unsure what speakers to get.

Also, could you provide me with some speaker recommendations? I've been quite interested in Dolby Atmos speakers, both soundbar and home cinema setup? What do you reckon is best?

Anyways I appreciate any advice.

' trying to work out is the best setup for my games room' - Step 1. re-envisage the room with the TV anywhere else but a corner. Look at the Dolby Layout Guides to get an idea of what you are trying to achieve.

Add dimensions to the plan to give folk an idea of the size of the room.

Do you have a budget and do you have an aesthetic the loudspeakers must meet?
