I have finished them. I did an initial test, and they appear to be working correctly.
I would like some advice on where to place them. I have sort of an odd room, hence why I chose the RS, because I don't have any space behind the couch we usually watch TV/Movies on.
I put 2 pictures of the speakers, which are painted with the same paint as the walls here: http://www.bethcutler.com/~swett/gallery/av1rs
And I put 2 pictures of my room from different angles so you can give me advice on where to put the surround speakers.
The 3 main options I can see are:
1) Putting them directly above the two edges of the couch. I'm not sure how far they would need to be from the door on one side and the wall on the other. My concern with this is whether they're sufficiently separated to give me good right-left separation.
2) Putting them on the side walls, about a foot out from the back wall the couch is on. This would be behind the open door in the picture, but obviously I'd close that for movie watching. My concern with this is whether the little wall sticking out is large enough. Its only 2', so if I put it a foot from the back wall, the speaker would only be a few inches from the corner.
3) Put them to the left of the open door you see in the first room picture and on the farthest wall you can see a little of on the right of the second picture. This would be about the same distance from the couch in both directions, but the wall could be somewhat in the way and I'm concerned that would put the speakers too far forward.
I'd like to listen to all of these, but I don't have two people to hold them for me for an extended period of time while I A/B test with all my favorite movies
