    hi guys, not posted on a while, as been busy with a house move etc.... which leads to me my problem.

    In my setup, my front stage is 700 series b&w.... but i have a surround problem.

    My sofa, like many needs to go directly on the back wall. so i have a positioning problem..

    My options are:

    1- Fit some surrounds above the sofa... in which case, im leaning towards the b&w DS7's dipoles?

    2 - have bookshelfs on stands, firing in from lef/right next to the sofa.

    3 - or... have the DS7's wall mounted next to the sofa firing in from the left/right.

    I think i know which way im headed on this, but inputs always appreciated.

    FYI these are exclusivly for movies - not multichannel music listening....

    Thx
    Kev

    I have exactly the same problems as you. I use your #3 as the solution. It works well. Im waiting till I can fit my other bipolars above the sofa to see if that improves the sound:D

    thanks for the reply... there are many with the same problem, but i get conflicting advice from dealers all over the place... not really too sure which way to go. Im heading towards the option 3 above..... when are you going to try option 2.. would be interested in your results.

    thx
