    I need some advise :lease:

    My room is a really akward shaped loft that was converted not too long ago.

    The front's will be around 4-5ft away from my seating positon - this I cannot change.

    My rears can be in one of three places:

    1) To the side of me, about 2ft away and just above ear height
    2) Slightly further back (about 110 degrees) at a distance of 4-5ft but below ear hight
    3) 10ft behind and well above ear height.

    The ceiling is a no go as it is too low!

    Which is the three would be best?

    :)

    I'd lean toward number 3 and would rule out number 1 completely as the sound would be very directional at such a short distance as 2ft. Also wouldn't be keen on 2 since they are so low.

    Sounds like you have a crap room really.

    Tell me about it! :(

    Hindsight is a wonderfull thing - if I knew I would be getting into all this home cinema malarky I would have done it differently...

    ...there is a spare room dowstairs - but it just doesn't feel like "my" room...

    ...there's not much that I can move around either - look's like a house move is in order!

    Just give it a go for now.

    But I'd definitely prefer 3. You could be pleasantly surprised and a plus point with lofts is the fact that the triangular roof is much better for acoustics and standing waves.
