    Hi, I'm in the process of planning a home theater room in my basement. The layout and dimensions are a little bit tricky. The width of the room is 9 feet, while the wall along the garage is 12 feet, and the wide wall is 19 feet. Ceilings are 9 feet high.

    I came up with 3 ideas for the layout (Layout C involves erecting a wall to create a closed room).

    Which layout do you think makes most sense in order to obtain the best viewing and listening experience? I'm considering acquiring a 65" OLED or 75" regular 4K television, and a 5.1 channel surround sound system.

    Thank you for your valuable input!

    Acoustically, Layout B is probably your best bet, though any of them could work with some treatment. Do you have any seating/space requirements that one of the layouts suits better?

    100% layout B. My room is only 12 feet from screen to back wall and it's too close IMO but I'm stuck. If I could do it over I would get my seating further away from the screen. So yeah I would not set up your room sideways.
