I did a search on a couple differant terms and didn't get anything that helped me, so here it goes. I am moving into a new apartment, and the living room is kinda small. It is like 17x11 but the area that the HT stuff will go is more like 11x11. Would it be preferable to have the TV and L/C/R on the long wall, or the shorter wall? If the TV is along the long wall then there is an issue with a brick wall along the right side of the room and the left side would be fairly open. If the TV was along the short wall it would be up against the brick wall and have fairly even walls on either side. My guess is the short wall... but the room might look a little better and actually fit more furniture if it is against the long wall.
