    Hi,

    Just looking for some advice on speak position. I have some KEF 3005se, and I'll be placing the centre speaker under the TV. it's the location of the satelites that I'm just wondering about before measureing up fully and ordering some speaker cable. (which I still need to choose)

    The room is laid out as below.

    The stars are where I was planning on placing the speakers and the smily faces are where we would sit normally. We have approx 3m ceiling and carpeted floors. I'm looking to mount the speakers just above a picture rail which is the same height as the door as this will hide the cables neatly.

    Any advice would be very welcome.

    Great dolby link in that thread :)

    Never realized they were meant to almost be level with the sofa at the back. Brilliant! Sorts out my new layout a treat :thumbsup:

    I've done a lot of mixing in 5.1 studios with the rears not in that position, but further back. Seems odd now looking at that.. :confused:

    Thanks for the links, seems the back are going to be perfect, just a little worried about the fronts as one will practically be over the tv.
