I'm in the process of setting up a 5.1 setup I just purchased. The room I'm putting it in isn't very big (about 13.5' by 10'), so I'm having quite the time trying to figure out where to place it all. I have quite a large entertainment stand and don't have much room to put speakers on the outside of the stand. I was thinking of putting it on the shelves on the stand but the manual the came with the speakers said this wasn't a good idea because it affect bass response substantially (there are port holes on the back of the speakers). Here are two pics of my stand, one showing the complete thing, and the other showing how the speaker will look inside the shelf. As you'll notice I have placed the speaker sideways, will this affect sound quality? Also, will the glass door screw up the imaging (i.e. will the sound bounce off of the door?), and would it be better to take the doors off? There is a cardboard backing to the stand, would it sound better if I took it off? Oh, and don't pay any attention to the good amount of space you see to the side of the stand, I am going to be putting this in a different room. *edit* I forgot to mention, the shelf is 14" deep and the speaker is 7" deep.
