    Hi all, Just moved into a new apartment and I have a funky shaped living room. I'll try to draw it out...

    That is currently how I have it, but somehow I feel like i'm losing sound with that empty space on the left. By the way that empty space is an open door kinda thingy into the kitchen, which makes it next to impossible to place a speaker there. What would you suggest? Thanks.

    What kind of speakers are you using. Are they larger floor-standing models, bookshelves, or minis. If they are minis or smaller then they can hang off the ceiling which will help somewhat with the L-R imaging. Other than that, what you have is pretty much it for that room I think.

    Neil, the front speakers are 10 inch towers, so they wouldn't hang very well [​IMG] The rears are 5 1/4's, but how would I hang them? I mean I know I can just go out and buy something, but is there something I can make?
