    We have a new constructed room with the dimentions of 16ft. wide, 22 feet long with a cathedral ceiling. We are purchasing a 60 inch TV that will sit in the corner of the room. Where is the best location for the 4 wall mounted speakers of the home theater system. Should the speakers be at a diagonal in the corners, or flat mounted on a wall and how far up the wall should they be mounted?

    The contractor is putting dry wall up tomorrow and we need to tell him where to put the speakers right away. Any advice will be greatly appreciated!!

    Thank you Wayne for the thread, the diagram helps a great deal! We actually have in mind a furniture set up very similar.

    Could you please tell me though - everyone seems to have a 7 speaker system, do you see a way to do this with 6?

    The only viable way I can see to do six-channels is to have the rear center either hanging from the ceiling or a flush-mounted ceiling speaker. This is because the rear corner is probably too far away from the seating position.
