    Hi all,
    I have recently bought an LG SK10Y soundbar and I'm considering adding rear satellites to add to the whole experience (of emptying my wallet).

    I have a smallish living room which I've, very crudely, mapped out on the image attached. IMG_20190415_092440.jpg

    I was considering mounting the rear speakers on the left and right walls.

    Has anyone else done this and would anyone else advise against this approach?

    LG only let's you control the rear volume as a pair and not individually so if your not sat on the right of the sofa, the left rear speaker could be annoying as hell

    If your couch is against the rear wall then forget 7.1.2. The idea of 7.1.2 is to take the sound behind you and ideally it needs to be at least a metre behind the couch for best effect. I certainly would not bother in your situation.

    Due to window and radiator placements in the room I wouldn't be able to currently.
