This might be a pretty ignorant question although I cannot find out the reason why it is wrong so I need some help. I have an awkward living room. In order for the LCR to be on the same horizontal plane I have to move all 3 up towards the ceiling maybe 12 -13" down from it. On image 1 and 2 you see the corner of a protruding wall it comes out 29" from the wall behind the TV to meet with the wall on image 2.Yes I am aware the center channel is not going to be in the best of locations for movies for music on the other hand based on countless diagrams the set up looks okay. They maybe up high but they will be angled toward MLP. Here is my question looking at image 1 and 2 you see my L and R Spkrs. The new set of mains like I wrote will be near the ceiling etc. so I was thinking of keeping the L and R where they currently are and have them acting as front presence ( Yamaha AVR ). From what I read these are supposed to be above and to the outside of the mains. In may case will not work and I was also told if they cannot be placed in the proper position do not use them at all. That is great but I would like to know why? All I am trying to achieve is for these to fill in some of the sound almost like what you would use rear surrounds for but in this case front surrounds. Can anyone explain this please??
