I am currently contemplating the placement of my speakers for 6.1. Probably KEF 2005.2 Eggs Its driving me nuts trying to decide the best position, as once the holes are drilled, that's it ! My old setup, at my previous house, was a Mission AV2 package. I had the rear speakers on the back wall, fairly high up...bad idea. The surround sound effect was not very good from the seating position. Great when standing up about a quarter of the way into the room - doh ! This time I am thinking of placing the rears on the sidewalls, pointing towards the seating position. Problem is, that means only one sofa will get the proper effect ! Some of the magazines recommend a different placement. Attached are some pics to show what I mean.... I am worried that option 2 will have a similar result as that in my old house. If I pull the back sofa a few feet forward in option 1 I imagine it would sound great What do you think is the best positioning ?
