I am trying to decide between a 6.1 and a 7.1 speaker set up in my new room. I have the amplification and speakers to do either so that's not the issue...what is the issue is speaker placement for both set ups. I have a door on my back wall which is right in the way if I were to set up two rear speakers properly for 7.1. I could mount a single rear centre right beside the door though for 6.1 leaving the rears on the side walls someplace (either b/t the two rows of seating or behing the last row) If I go 7.1 I'd have two sides between the two rows of seating and the two back speakers would be placed in the corners at the back of the room angled towards the sweet spot...so basically what I'm asking is which setup would you do?
