To set the scene - my room is a perfect square 5mx5m with my sofa exactly in the middle of the room. My TV (85cm wide) is up against and in the middle of the front wall. I've got an AE Evo centre and want to get matching fronts. Problem is that with the other stuff that's in the room there isn't much space to the left of the TV but quite a bit to the right. My potential solutions to this problem are:- 1) Put one Evo 3 to the left of the TV, pretty much bang up against it, and to the right of the TV there will be an equipment rack (about 80cm wide) and then another EVO3 to the right of that. 2) As above but equipment rack and right speaker swap places, so right speaker up against TV. 3) I go for wall/shelf mounted Evo 1s which are evenly placed either side of TV. My thoughts on these options are as follows:- 1) Problem with left speaker being closer to TV than right speaker - is this easily remedied by a typical 7.1 receiver, say at the £400 price mark? If so, what facility is it I should look for? I'm guessing it'll be something a bit more complex than a balance control? 2) Speakers too close together - there will only be about 1 metre between them. Sofa will be about 2m from front speakers. 3) Will Evo 1s be enough to fill my room with sound? Even though AE website says they are designed for bookshelf use, are they really any good on a bookshelf? Would you put both on either end of one shelf or would you use sperate shelves? Sorry for slightly protracted post, grateful for any advice you guys can give.
