    Tried searching and havent found any good sources yet so turn to the experts. I have a number of sonos units and have just got another one with a view to setting up another room. This room is not regularly used and is purely to chill out. It measures 2.5m by 4.5m and i intend to use JBL ceiling speakers. I will be sitting along one of the longer wall, so where should I place the speakers for optimum listening. I appreciate that ceiling speakers wont be as good for sound as big boxes but I have a seperate room for that.

    i would suggest putting them just in front of the sofa and about 2-3ft either side of it, if most of the listening is done there.

    alternatively perhaps moving them to the centre of the room but spreading them further apart, so you have 3 even measurements between them, so they span the length of the room if that makes sense:thumbsup:

    thanks mate, will probably try centre with equal placements, I thimk they can be angled internally.

    many of the better ones can be angled, so that will make things much easier with tweaking to get the best sound:)
