    I need to mount speakers - the install crew is here, I thought I knew but I need some quick advice, I've attached a photo, of two possible locations, your advice is appreciated!!!

    The problem is that my dining room is small, and entered into my living room which is much bigger, I'm worried that the rear sound can't expand into the living room.

    yes, in the second photo I'm standing where the screen will be (you can see that in the first photo), but you can see my reflection in the mirror. Sorry I should have explained that better.

    The projector will be about 23-24 feet away from the screen based on this URL it should be OK. Projector Calculator. what I'm trying to figure out now are the rear speakers. I know rear speakers aren't incredibly important, but I'm worried about shielding the sound if I put them in the dining room, as the living room opens up.

    No I'm doing 5.1. the 1 and 2 numbered in the photos are the rear speakers.
    It's a choice, either mounting 1 and 2 in one position or 1 and 2 behind. as I stated I'm worried that the smaller dining room will close up the sound for the rear speakers when Im in the living room if I put it close to the mirror.

    Is that an air con controller on pillar 2 ? If so would that make 1+2 (air con pillar ) fronts

    If so call them 1+ 1 - ....2+ 2 being the rears ?

    sorry I don't understand. I just am trying to put two rear speakers up, forget about my numbering, can I put them on the walls right next to the mirror? will that just wreck the sound?

    Do the speakers have to be so high up?

    Ideally head/ear height is preferable!
