    My wife bought me the Z120 for the holidays. I've purchase speakers (2 CSR8 Two) for the living room. However, I'm having a difficult time determining the placement for the in-ceiling speakers. The challenge is where to place the speakers for quality listening while sitting on the L couch in the corner of the living room / entryway. Since I don't need direct sound in the entryway I plan to position the speakers on the one side of the room. The question is where?

    Are these speakers for a 5.1 AV system or just background music? What is the Z120?
    Do you have 4 ceiling speakers to install? A bit more description of what exactly you hope to achieve, what sources you are using etc. may help to advice better.

    2. I'm using the speakers for background music.

    If they are just for background music then spread them around the seating location that you want the sound. Probably 1 at the end of the sofa and then then other 2 towards the front of the room the same width apart.
