Hi Jakewash,

Yes, I'd agree with you and since I don't frequent AVS forums, thanks for adding your comments on the very small sat/sub systems a la Orb, Bose, etc. which very often do exhibit a pronounced "hole" in the spectrum and are not in the same league as the Axioms.

I don't think he stated the room size, listening distance and volume preferences which of course can vary dramatically from one person to the next and thus affect the choice of speakers.

Alan

Floor plan uploaded here all dimensions in millimetres.

The console will be on the side wall as shown, and listener to console distance will be about 8 ft. Any suggestions for this setup?

As Alan points out, the comment on the AVS forum re a sub and "finer details" is total nonsense and illustrates a misunderstanding of how musical detail is delivered. Again, with a good sub, the M22 is suggested for musical enjoyment.

Ok guys, you got me sold. M22s for LCR and a sub it is. Was thinking of M22v2s for LR and a M22 on-wall for centre. Rears will be a pair of QS8v2s. Will reuse a sub I have.

What do you think of this setup? Any suggestions based on my floor plan?

Yikes, that is one tough floorplan to set up for HT. looks like you may need to use stands for the QS8's or ceiling mount them. Is the TV going to be in the console or just the av gear?

My first suggestion would be to have the TV and LCR on the left hand (4100mm) wall in the Living/dining room that is the most central in the floor plan and then you could have the surrounds mounted on the backwall to the sides of the listening position or flip it 180 deg.

Hi Jake,

I like your suggestion, but the wife said no \:\( Actually, thats the area reserved for dining. The entertainment console needs to be where I have marked it. The Tv will be wall mounted, andthe AV gear will be placed in the console.

The fronts will be on either side of the console, probably at a distance of 3 feet on both sides. Thinking of getting a on-wall M22 for the centre. Read my previous post.

The surrounds will be wall mounted on either side of corridor leading to the bedrooms - (1200 mm ) Must depend on Audyssey to make the necessary corrections for distance.

Will a combination of M22s and QS8s be good enough for this room size, or should I consider other options?

The M22's and QS8s will work great and sorry to hear about the WAF as that would have been a much better location IMO. The seating in the other position will be tough to set up for surrounds.

Where does one fix the surrounds in a 5.1 setup? Behind the listener, or on the sides? What would be the best position for the QS8s?

The best location for the surrounds is to the side and slightly behind the seating position ~3 feet above ear level.

The QS8 is designed to disperse sound well, so it has a lot more flexibility in placement. There are a number of people here who have them ceiling mounted.
