    Hey guys,

    I'm having a hardtime deciding where to put a rear speaker. I am also planning to use my fronts(Paradigm Atoms) as the rear speaker. I have attached here a link which will give you an idea how my basement looks like(top view). On the drawing, I drew 4 empty rectangles with numbers 1 and 2. The "1" means, easier to install since the other side of the wall is accessible and does not have a drywall. "2" means completety drywalled but it that is the recommendation, I can poke it in.

    Let me know your recommendation.

    i have a similar large room, and installed my rear speakers at "1". I boost the rear speaker level, and have been pleased with the results. With the right speakers, you should be fine.[​IMG]

    if you put them on the back wall maybe it would be better to get some bipole(is that what I am looking for) speakers so that they are not as directional. You know the type that have speakers that are angles and don't just put sound forward

    Ok. I was actually planning to put my existing Paradigm atoms as rears. But unfortunately, atoms aren't bipoles. [​IMG]

    I don't think bipoles are really necessary if the rear speakers would be that far behind you. Honestly if you had bipoles that far away it might be hard to get the loud enough to really have a good affect on the system. Also, remember that you'll have to calibrate those speakers pretty loud to match with the others at the seats so if there are other people doing other things in the room those speakers could be really distracting to them.
