    20180417_082926.jpg my listening area is the living room with hardwood floors (1903 original) when house was built. 30' length x 20' wide. the issuse im having is how to deal with a enclosed bump out (covered chimney). or should i just move the left speaker over next to the entertainment center? i have a spare bedroom, 15'x15' but really dont want to move it all in there. livingroom would be empty.
    how would you deal with issue? any ideas or insights? 20180417_082911.jpg 20180417_082831.jpg

    Can you just move the speaker to the other side of the chimney and move the other one forward to match? Personally I wouldn't want them out in the hallway, but thats probably because I'd trip on them in the middle of the night at some point. Stubbed toes at 2 am are not how you want to wake yourself up.

    You have no wife correct? This is always my first question in speaker placement.

    What is behind the line 6 amp? Maybe you can move the amp some where else and move your entertainment stand to the right enough to fit your left speaker on the wall?

    The chimney must go lol.


    Are you able to rearrange the setup so the equipment is on the long wall?

    no because of the bedroom door on left side of the chimmney bump out. and the surround speakers would be off. im just dealing with it the way it is.

    (calls landlord)- hey that bump out wall is messing up my ht setup, chimney needs to go!

    I had a similar situation when I moved to California, didn't even bother unpacking my equipment for almost three yrs until we moved again.
