    Hey

    I thought I could come here for some "Home Theater Foru Expert Advice" .

    What I need to know is the best placement for my rear surround speakers. We are in the process of starting the drywall tomorrow, I Would like to pre-wire the walls BEFORE drywall though so these are the room dimensions:

    Length: 24 Feet

    Width: 9.5 Feet

    I will have a 53" RPTV (HD) and was wondering the best seating distance and rear surround setup, should I just put speaker terminals on my far rear wall? Should I mount them from the Ceiling? Sould I mount them on either side wall even though they are no dipole?

    This is the advice I need ASAP so I can setup my boxes for the wire to feed through.

    Thanks in advance

    Matt

    If you don't mind wasting a bit of wire, you can run it all over the place behind the wall, zigzaging where the most likely spot would be. Then after it's finished and you are ready to place the speakers, cut your hole, reach around, and you should find the wire.
