I'm struggling to locate the front speakers. During framing last year of a 22 x 22 x 9 room I ran speaker wire to 3 locations along the front wall where the flat panel display is. While the center channel should be okay, I think the left and right channels are too far out from the center of the display (~7ft off center, 14ft apart, and above the windows). I ran the speaker wire to these locations due to wanting in-wall speakers and there being structural posts either side of the display.
I'm now thinking that I should abandon the speaker wire for the left & right channels, and snake new wire starting on a traditional horizontal plane with the display and to the outer edge of the structural posts, down through to the basement.
Alternatively, perhaps left and right in-ceiling speakers would be better - I can cut into the existing left / right speaker wires as it runs in the ceiling cavity in front of the windows before moving down into the wall cavity.
Please see attached pre-sheetrock picture. You can see the speaker wire coiled in the wall above the windows, and the 110v outlet for the flat panel display.
The side and rear surround channels are all in-ceiling and I don't anticipate any issues there.
Any guidance is appreciated.
(I just uploaded the finished front wall, and yes thats a temporary device until I figure out the new kit)
