Hello all,

I'm creating a fitness area in our cellar and am in doubt how many speaker cables to prepare. I was going for just stereo but am in doubt if I should maybe prepare for four speakers.

The layout would be approximately like this:
View attachment 114223
The current idea for the speakers are on the wall on the right with the L speaker next to the TV and the R speaker to the right hand side of the door, in the corner.
Possibly two more on the opposite wall.

Any suggestions / advice? Thanks!

Seems like 2-4 ceiling speakers in a generic "surround" mode would be good. You just want to fill the room with sound, so it sounds ok no matter where you're at or what direction you're facing.

"Stereo" has little value if it's coming from the front but you're facing to the sides.

Thanks, last sentence indeed makes a lot of sense. Unfortunately I don't have the space for ceiling speakers :( (unless you know of some very very thin ones that don't break the bank!)

I'd probably just put four wall/shelf mounted speakers, one in each corner. Then decide which side of the room is left and right, and wire them that way. I wouldn't bother with any kind of "All channel stereo" or anything like that. Just two left and two right channel speakers.
