My listening room is 17'L x 12.5'W x 9.33'H with the seating position (couch) ~3' from the back wall. Those three feet are a walkway and there's a couple doors in that wall so no speakers can go near ear level. There is a backside of a chimney sticking into the room in the middle of one wall. I have Paradigm 5se MkIIs (bought 'em in '92) for my fronts. So I'm looking to mount surrounds either above the doors (80") on the back wall, or maybe on the side walls even with the couch. The side wall placement bothers me a bit because of the chimney (concerned about reflections). Anyone want to share advice on what type of speakers to get and where to place them? I stopped by a local dealer - who sells Paradigm - and he recommended MB Quart Balcony speakers on the back wall, or grudgingly the Paradigm ADP-70 or 170s. I've read a bit of the dipole vs monopole debate and don't know that I have a clear leaning - maybe a bit toward the directionality of monopoles. But do my placement limitations rule them out? I think that's enough rambling for now. - Jasen.
