Now that I have my new speakers(thank's David) I have a big decision to make as far as mounting what where !!
I have the following
CS-300(old ctr. spkr.) currently my rear center speaker.
My room is 12' x15' 8'H
My listening position is about 3 feet from the back wall.
Unfortunately , to each side is a doorway that's about 7' high.
The only way I'd be able to mount speakers directly to my sides, would be above the doorways, 4 ft above my listening position and 1 ft. from the ceiling. Theres no room between the doors and the rear wall to mount.
So much for mounting my side speakers directly to my sides.
So, I'm stuck with mounting my side speakers, approx. 18" in front of my seat, where I can mount the speakers at any height.
I know this isn't recommended but I really don't have a choice here.
So, which speakers do I go with here,on the side walls but a bit in front of me? The FX's or the RT's?
Also, how high above the listening position should they be mounted?
If the FX's go on the side walls , do I mount the RT's against the back wall, horizontally, facing the front?
How high and how far apart should the rear speakers be mounted on the back wall?
Any thoughts, suggestions and / or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
