I've enjoyed the HTF for years but this is my first post so be gentle! I've recently bought a new house and am trying to determine the best placement for my 6.1 system. Here's the problem... For simplicity sake in describing, I have a rectangular shaped room - one side of which being a "breakfast" area, with the other side being the family room. There is a small half wall (about 3 feet high) separating the two areas which I will be backing my couch on to. I am having issues with rear speaker placement as placing the rear speakers on or around the half wall will be VERY visible and obtrusive. So...one option I'm thinking of is placing the rear speakers on top of some cupboards on the rear wall of the breakfast room. Some specific dimension information: Distance from couch to TV / front speakers = 13 feet Distance from couch to rear speakers = 14 feet Height of rear speakers from couch / floor level = 8 feet Now, I know speaker placement is often a trial and error thing but I need to look at pre-wiring possibilities (the house will be constructed shortly). Does anyone have any suggestions / advise on whether this is a viable placement option? Thanks in advance for any help. Cheers!
