Confused about Cambridge SoundWorks S200 speakers


Novice Member
First time poster, long time lurker here.

I recently acquired some Cambridge SoundWorks S200 surround sound speakers, along with a Denon AVR-891 receiver. It also came with a large MC300 LCR Loudspeaker for the center channel. I have two bookshelf speakers and a woofer that I've added to my setup to make a complete 5.1 system.

My question is: Where the heck am I suppose to place the other speakers? Does anyone know how to integrate the other speakers with the S200s?

The manual says put them on the sides towards the middle and makes no mention of any other speakers in the setup, so I'm not sure they're even designed for 5.1/7.1 use, but I can't really be sure. Manual is here: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/71uq4Qp7OGL.pdf

Thanks to all for the help!

Front LR - 2 x Bookshelf
Centre - 1 x MC300
Side surround - 2 x S200
Sub - 1 x 'woofer'.

5.1 layout - follow the Dolby Labs guide and read it in conjunction with the S200 guide on positioning and which speaker goes to the left and right of your seating position.

The S200 guide assumes you have the rest of the speaker system in place.
