Hey all,

I am trying to do my first home theater setup and I am providing a diagram for you all to look at to see if you can help me with a couple of questions I have.

I am painting the screen on the bottom wall of the diagram (about 126" screen) and probably will buy an Epson 8350.

1. Would the sound still be ok if I place the Center speaker horizontally below the screen? I will still have the right and left speakers at ear level. How much of a difference should I expect in sound?

2. With a 24' long room, is it still possible to place surround back speakers even though they will not be directly behind the seating area (i.e. the SBR and SBL will be facing each other, just farther than the SR and SL speakers)? I cannot place the SBR and SBL behind the seats because there are 4 windows in the back that take up most of the room in the back wall and I dont want to place the SBR and SBL speakers near the corner of the back wall.

Please advise.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for all the great advice. I can probably place it vertical right below the screen, I think I have about 1 foot and a half below the screen. I don't believe speakers are that tall are they?

Hey RTS,

When you say my drawing looks fine for speaker placement (as long as you have swivel tweeters), I am assuming you're talking about the rear surrounds, right?

No, but I am open to suggestions. For a 7.1 system like I am looking to setup, what would be a good sounding set of speakers and sub with decent sound for a 24' by 16' room? Im probably not looking to spend more than $1k on speakers.
