Im just getting together the parts to my first home theatre setup and due to my room constraints (12' x 16 ') I opted for a compact system. The speakers that I have now are:
fronts: RM7300 x 2
Since my room is smaller and the rear of the couch would only be 12-16 inches from the wall would I get any additional benefit from upgrading to a 6.1 system? and how would I do that knowing that having a speaker directly behind you is not ideal (2 rear centre speakers?). I do want the fuller immersion from 6.1 but do not know how to pull it off with my dang couch practically against the rear of the wall.
