Move from 5.1 to 6.1, where to purchase single speaker?

Hi,

I set up a 5.1 system last year, and I've been happy with it, but I've been having reservations about the speaker placement.


Code:
Currently it is

-------------------------------------
-       FR                          -
-   TV                           RR -
- FL                   ss           -
-                      ss           -
- SW                V  ss           -
-           sssssssssssss           -
-                                   -
-                              RL   -
-------------------------------------
FR = Front Right
FL = Front Left
RR = Rear Right
RL = Rear Left
SW = Sub Woofer
SS = Sofa
V = Viewing Position

The Rear Left Speaker is directly behind my viewing position, which makes me think that I am not getting the full benefit of surround soundtracks.

The speaker cable is run behind the skirting board, so changing the position is not an option (the cable would be too short anyway)

A solution I can think of is to add another speaker to make it a 6.1 setup, and switch the Rear Left to a Rear Centre.
Code:
-------------------------------------
-       FR                          -
-   TV                           RR -
- FL                   ss           -
-                      ss           -
- SW                V  ss           -
-           sssssssssssss           -
-                                   -
-               RL             RC   -
-------------------------------------
FR = Front Right
FL = Front Left
RR = Rear Right
RL = Rear Left
RC =Rear Centre
SW = Sub Woofer
SS = Sofa
V = Viewing Position
The question I have, is where can I purchase a single Diamond 9.0 Speaker to make this up to a 6.1 setup?
