Placement for a 5.2.4 system


Novice Member
Floor plan - .
Planned equipment:
  • KEF Q750 x 2.
  • KEF Q650C.
  • KEF Q150 x2.
  • SVS PB-1000 or HSU VTF-2 MK5 x2.
  • Polk Audio OWM3 x 4.
  • Not sure about receiver.
Moving into this house in a few weeks and would like to plan the placement in the meantime.

It is an open living room with some space in the back. More accurate floor plan (living room marked in X) - .

The right wall has a huge sliding door so unfortunately I can't put any speakers on that wall. Not sure what I can do about it at the moment.

My thoughts so far - . 1 fronts, 2 center, 3 subs.

I have no idea what to do about the surround ones, and not sure about where to put the ceiling ones. Also would like to have feedback on the sub placement.

Any advice regarding anything would be appreciated, thanks!

If it was me, with the sofa in the centre. I would do Atomis top front, and top rear (4), surrounds on the side at 90 degree (maybe slightly further back) (5), and if you wanted 7.2.4, then 2 rears directly behind.
