    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.

    What rears do you have. A dipole type rear would probably be OK in both of thes positions.

    I'm just about to site my surround right speaker in the alcove, like your position "1" but opposite it, i.e. on the side of the chimney breast.

    It will be on a wall-mounted speaker bracket and turned through 90°, facing out into the room, which means it will be about 15" away from the alcove wall behind it. I haven't run the system yet and am hoping that the speaker won't boom too much, it being rear-ported. If it does, I'll have to bung the port up.

    The reason it is on that side of the alcove is it's a surround in a 7.1 set-up, the rears are on the rear wall (i.e. where your space through to the other room is) and I didn't want them too close.
