Would it work?

In reply to: 5.1 surround sound


If you are saying that the layout of the two rooms means that speaker placement is inconvenient, ie blocking a door or something?

Without knowing the layout I couldn't say how best to setup the speakers, but it will definitely work.

If you are unfamiliar with the ideal placement of 5.1 speakers, you can definitely find info on the net. Once you see where the speakers should be positioned, you can then try and setup it up as close to that within your living rooms unique layout. That's what we all have to do.

Good luck
