Speaker placement help (open floor plan)
our house is being repaired after storm damage, so I am taking the opportunity to add some upgrades. I am setting up for a 5.2.4 atmos. So far I have:
4 Sonance 6.5 in ceiling with pre-construction brackets
Pioneer Elite 503 AVR
Polk Monitor 10 series floors (will be replaced)
Acoustic research center (will be replaced)
I have a few questions / problems. The main one is speaker placement. We have an open living room to the kitchen/dining room. This can't be changed with a false wall or anything, so not an option. We also have french doors and big windows, lol.
Below is a sketch up of the room. It isn't to exact proportions, but its close enough (if anyone needs measurements, please ask). The 4 orange/white dots are the in ceiling, the black circles are fronts and rears, and the 2 black squares are subs.
I know this is far from ideal and I do not expect anything other than immersion, but I also want to set it up right.
