Ok. Here is a rough diagram of my 14'4" x 13'0" TV room. I run a 5.1 (or 5.2 if you will ) setup. CS1, M60's, M30's and dual PSW 505 subs. I never gave a rats about WAF but with our new furniture, and our 2 year old, this room is set up roughly how she wants it.
In the red ovals are the Monitor 30 speakers, on 24" stands, also in those areas are objects (small toy box, floor lamp) that are moveable. They are at ear level when sitting in the recliners. But obviously one recliner/listener blocks one and vise versa for the other chair.
Question: should I face the speakers at a 90 degree angle parallel with the back wall behind the recliners (which is actually the front of the house, including a very large bay window)Or at an angle? Should I put them in the corners or out a bit? I really can't hear them very often as I watch mostly sports and dramas and like I said I have a two year old and in a small room, this system plays very, very loud so it's mainly at about a 3 of a volume scale of 1-10.
I will be standing by for any advice or additional info. I know I should continue trying different positions along with running the Yamaha receiver's setup mic and using a DB meter. Been there done that. The best sound? Hung high on the wall (the small wall in front of the entrance doorway, and directly across on the opposite wall, but the speaker stands are staying. No more holes in the walls, and I already fixed them. The wife likes the stands better. So stands it is. Lastly I must keep the chairs near the back wall/window. It is what it is. Small room. I would love to dump the chairs and drop the couch in the center, but that won't happen.
Any friendly help is appreciated.
