Right, I've been planning my room, and have come up with the following plan: The room is about 3.7m long, and 2.5m wide, so I don't have much room to play with Here's a render of the seating end of the room. The speakers are 1m up, which is the height of the KEF speaker stands. The speakers (which will be Kef 2005.2s) are rendered to the correct dimensions. The other end of the room will have a screen (about 5 or 6ft wide) with the image being provided by a PJ mounted on the ceiling somewhere over the sofa. For a 5.1 setup, this should be OK, but I was wondering about a 6.1 or 7.1 setup though. As you can see from the render, I don't have much space to play with for rear speakers though. The only real option is to put them on the window sill. This would put them head height, around 12" behind. The lighting problem this could cause should be solvable with some blackout blinds. The other option would be to turn the room around and put the seating at the other end. Then the rear speakers could be wall mounted behind the seats, but they'd still be a little close. The other problem with this is that the door opening may interfere with the seating position. Ofcourse I could just forget the entire thing and stick with a 5.1 setup. Thoughts would be appreciated.
