    So this is my current living room layout I'm stuck with. Running a pair of Klipsch Heresy II's right now but I'm ordering a pair of Klipsch RP-160M's for shits and giggles. Here's a quick sketch of my living room dimensions. My Heresy's are about 6'-6" apart on center and toed in towards the center of my couch which puts me the listener about 9' away from my speakers...what do you guys think?

    Use the Short Wall(13') with Your Speakers(Cornwalls?? or Forte III's) angled in the Corners.........Maybe Ditch the Couch and get a couple of Recliners :idea: with a Coffee or a single Table between the two New Chairs. ;)

    Congrats on Your New Place.......Keep Us Posted with Pictures with whatever You Choose to do.

    I had it setup with the speakers on each side of the fireplace in the corners but I don't want to mount my TV above the fireplace and with that setup my couch ends up being right in front of the door when you walk into my house. I'll never be satisfied until I build my own house!

    I didn't know You had a Fireplace on that Wall.......I would put Your TV & System in front of Your Windows(no reflection from windows) and Your Couch where Your TV is at now.

    Either way I would get Blackout Curtains for the Windows.........Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

    Good Luck with Setting Up Your Living Room.

    Take it Easy, Mike. :smoke:

    Alright guys so I moved things back to how I first had it setup just to show you and get some more opinions. Speakers are about 9 feet away (toed in) from my ears and about 9 feet apart from each other...the only thing I don't like is that my couch is in the middle of the room basically in front of my front door...

    Door aside, Im confident that the room would sound better this way.

    That's probably the best, but I'd expect some pretty serious bass nulls (I don't know if you'd even be able to avoid it in any configuration though).

    Could you move couch farther toward wall behind camera and add light listening chair(s) where couch is sitting? Chairs could be easier to move or swivel for audio or TV watching. Or sling chairs that could be easily withdrawn. I use reclined sling chairs with integral headrests. Fairly comfortable. Everyones tastes are different.
    May be a chalanging room, but there are much worse, like a cube shape.
    Good luck.
