I've read a number of different views on speaker placement, in particular the placement for the rear surrounds. A few of them say to place surrounds in the back of the room, others indicate on the side walls towards the rear of the room. From what I can tell, the side walls towards the rear is the more correct method. (I'm speaking of direct radiating speakers here). Here's my problem: My theater room is sort of small, with the rear seating at or against the rear wall. To make matters worse, the rooms opens to a larger room on the right side, so there is no side wall on the rear right for a right surround speaker. Also, the ceiling is suspended ceiling tiles which makes hanging anything from the ceiling more difficult. Anyone else have similar room problems such as this ? What would be a good placement for the surrounds with this setup, is it possible to bank the sound from the rears off a suspended ceiling and achieve good results ? One more, Should a sub be placed towards or away from the room opening. ? ............... . RPTV . . rf c lf. . . . . . . . . . . open . . . seating .......................
