I recently bought Monitor Audio MA Silver FX for my 5.1 system in my basement. I haven't connected them yet but I will play around with placement. Below are some pictures of my basement. I think the best placement will be on the sides and a few feet up from ear level. Mounted on the cross bars. Because my couch is against the back wall I'm afraid of hanging them on the back wall. Attached are placement wither on the cross bars or on the back wall. I've read and read all the treads but my layout is a little different than most. Need thoughts on this please.
