Question 7.1 System...does this look right?

Greetings and Salutations from Missouri!

I am a new comer to the world of audio home theaters. I am finishing my basement which will boast my very first home theater. I have created a diagram (see attached) and would like to know if the 7.1 surround system speakers are placed correctly.

Thanks!

Seems fine to me. The only thing I would consider is the spacing of the front left and right. May be a bit far from the edge of the screen, but assuming they can be easily relocated you can later. I suggest getting some video where a car travels across the screen and see how the sound matches up to the action.

rbink,

Thanks for the idea. What are some good "test" movies you would recommend when tweaking my home theater system?

Can't think of any off hand, but when you watch movies just try to pay attention to the sound field vs the action on the screen.
