6.1 or 7.1


Standard Member
I'm in the process of redecorating the living room and want to hide the rear speaker cables. My present setup is 6.1 (a single centre back) which is all my pioneer 502 gives. I will be upgrading this slimline unit as I now have space to house something decent.
My question is will I notice a considerable difference + the layout doesn't help matters much.
At present the room is 18ft x 12ft with the settee looking up the 18ft length 20" off the back wall.
The rears are 5ft high on the wall and 15" out from the back wall (on the 18ft side) pointing across the seating position, the centre back is in the middle at the same height.
I feel if I make it 7.1 the two sets of rears will be too close to each other.

Any thoughts greatly appreaciated.
