My modest front room set up


Active Member
Hi everyone,

long time lurker here who has finally got to a place where they’re reasonably happy with their set up (well as happy as I can be lol). Think my next step is either going to be 2 speakers at the rear and move the fx to the sides, or drop the fx and fit 2 atmos as my amp is only 5.1.2

Very nice. If you bring the centre speaker so that it sits proud of the front edge of the cabinet by around 25mm then that will help get rid of some unwanted reflections off the cabinet top. A soft rug in front of the cabinet will also help.

Thanks for the advice, I’ll give that a try. Have got a rug on the floor but it’s about a metre away so will try moving it closer

Nice setup!


I'd be tempted to bring the front L & R further forward also. Can those FX's be mounted to the sides ?

Hi dodge,

yes they can but swmbo would rather I keep them at the rear. I am allowed to lower them so maybe atmos and not 7.1 is the way to go in the future. Just trying to work on her to allow the LCR to be moved further forward 😃👍🏻


Explain to her that you've invested a lot of money and time getting to where you are now. And while it does sound great, to absolutely maximise what you've done so far and to plan ahead, the FX's should 'ideally' be at the sides. Doing this will maximise your Atmos plans, as I see your room anyway ;)

Will mention it later (after a glass or two 😂)
