My system is 6.1 with the main LR on each side of my projection screen
at 30 degrees, the surrounds in front of the side walls at 110 and one
surround back wall-mounted about 8 feet directly behind the seating
I have sufficient wall space above, behind and to the right of my LR
mains (the suggested placement for PLIIz height speakers) and room on
the walls at 45 degrees from the center speaker for either height or ear
level placement (suggested positioning for DSX height speakers).
Unfortunately, I have no open real estate at 60 degrees (the suggested
spot for DSX wides).
My receiver is the new AVR-4810ci so I can use both heights and wides if
I wish. What do you suggest? Just going with DSX heights at 45 degrees
and skipping the wide channels, attempting ear-level wides at 45 degrees
or trying both area for wides and heights even if not the ideal
placement. Of course, I could just do the PLIIz heights with no
placement issues at all, but I would like to go with DSX technology
because it also allows use of my back surround simultaneously (which
PLIIz does not).
