I still need to buy 5 speakers for the HT side of things, and I think maybe I might actually buy them in a month or a week or something :) They will most likely be smaller bookshelves. Anyway: This is taken from the middle of the couch. The options I can think of: * On the wall, to the sides of the screen, which will place them somewhat above the sitting position. * On the wall, below the screen, out at the edges of the screen. Here my concern is that the baffles of the stereo speakers will block line-of-sight for the sides of the couch, and 99% of the time it's me and my wife watching movies, not just me sitting in the middle. * On the cabinet, at the ends of the cabinet. This may look funny, and I'm not sure if it's a bad idea to have the distance between the front 3 speakers be so much smaller than the width of the screen. Is it important to have the speakers be as far apart as the image width? And then for the back: The room has these diagonal walls, and that soffit-thingy that ends partway into the back wall. Should I place the surround speakers at the ends of the back wall, where the first angled wall meets it? That'll put them above and behind the couch. Or should I put them halfway on the angled wall... which would be above the window... or where that wall meets the next wall (i.e. above the lamp). And then the same thing for the other side. And what size speakers do I need? The room is 13x15. Let's say I'm willing to cross to the sub a little higher than the recommended 80Hz. I'm thinking something with 6" woofers will certainly be enough, but what about 5.25"? 4"? 3"? I don't think "micro" speakers will work, and I'd probably be unhappy with the way they sound anyway. This isn't about WAF, she doesn't really care too much either way, but there are already 2 big speakers in the room, I don't want to have a room full of speakers, and I don't want to be hanging heavier speakers on the walls than I need to.
