Speaker Placement in Open Room.
My fiance' and I recently moved to a new home and we've got a main room we'd like to setup for some decent movie watching. So we're using our backup pieces to make it happen. I'm having some trouble with the placement however.
The Equipment :
70 TV/Games/Sports - 30 Music
The Problem :
So my home theater was easy. Everything was tailored to what we wanted. This room is a bit different and I'd like to get the best possible without killing everyday use and aesthetics. Width is 16 feet by 14. However, with the dining room area, that adds an extra 12 feet on the left. Putting us at 28 wide. The back wall slopes down into the fireplace wall. The back wall's height is 18 feet coming down to 10 feet. The measure from base to floor with cushion is 25 inches give or take and I'm planning for the FXiA6 height at 6.5 feet. Giving a bit of space above the head for viewers.
The Question :
Is this placement ideal? Should the FXiA'6 be spaced out more and or moved higher / lower? The second part, this should be fun. Given the size of the room, I'm almost leaning towards a two sub setup. However, I'm also looking at a few single sub solutions. I'm looking at some of Polk's, HSU and SVS' offering. But honestly I'm at that point where I can't make up my mind. So I'm leaving it to you, the best forumers in the audio realm.
Thanks ahead of time.
