Help with speaker positioning in corner setup, medium sized room

Hi

I'm new here and apologies if the place gets bogged down with similar requests after Christmas :) Am thinking of getting a set of 5.1 speakers for the living room, but due to the corner setup (which unfortunately can't be easily changed due to window/door positioning), I'm not certain it would be possible to get decent acoustics. Attached (hopefully) is a simple picture of TV/sofa positioning + available wall space with L+W dimensions. Any suggestions on speaker placement would be welcomed.

Thanks,

Neil

I have a similar problem, and to make matters worse I am a bit of a HiFi purist but it can be done!
You need to go 6.1 to get the best results.
Front LCR each side of the TV, Centre in centre (of course), then L rear high on the left wall at end of sofa, R rear high on wall at end of other sofa and mount the Centre Rear in the opposite corner to your TV (behind you).
Do it this way with a good sound system and you will be completely surrounded in any film and if you listen to music in Stereo it will sound great! (and this really surprised me)
Enjoy :thumbsup:

thanks for the advice abbo.

just to clarify, with reference to the original diagram, you are suggesting L rear mounted on the wall that the end of sofa2 is touching, and R rear essentially diagonally opposite? sort of as below

Exactly. But the Centre Rear is very important.
