I am in the process of redecorating my living room so have the chance (other half permitting) to chennel out the walls and get my Home cinema set-up sorted out for the first time in years. The problem is that i cannot work out the best place for the surround speakers. The TV would go in a bay window with the front speakers about 2m apart. The sofa would sit in one half of the room, below a beam (used to be two rooms, now knocked into one) shown below So the two places the speakers could go would be 1 or 2 The problem with the rear right is that it would be in an alcove by the chimney breast so i guess thats not ideal. The only way to really tell would be to try out both options but wondered what people thought might be best.
