The front speakers could be placed on small shelves about eight feet from the floor. Insure that they do not actually touch the walls either to the side or behind them. The shelves only need to be big enough to support the speakers, the fronts could be large and still provide the sound needed. The rear speakers can be shelf mounted and smaller but again must not contact the walls. The rear speakers should be above and behind the prime seating area. If the front speakers are large enough with at least ten inch woofer elements, no sub woofer would be needed. True surround sound does not require a center speaker or subwoofer as the main and rear speakers should provide the interaction to create the chest thumping beat notes that a subwoofer would simulate.
I have what I consider a challenging room to place my new speaker system.
Can anyone make some good suggestions for me?
I have a long and narrow living room with high walls.
I will be putting in a POLK RM6750BK speaker set, and an Onkyo TX-SR575 receiver.
Here are pictures of my living room.
Thanks in advance!
