Here's another shot, I'm trying to show the you where the drywall ends on the left... See my keyboard leaning against hte wall? basically to the right of that is my closet door, so that's about as far to the left as I can go. should I go 6" in from that? and then 6" in from the right wall?

ANy more suggestions? Also I'll take some more pictures tomorrow when I get home from work.

Sean, if that's as far as you can go on that side that's the way it is. Computation complete.

I reckon John knows his stuff, Daphoid. Maybe because the dimensions of your room are not huge and you have QS8s rather than 4s...
My 8s are on the back wall about 25' apart and 8' up - it is not ideal. I was watching the latest Matrix flick a couple weeks ago, stood up to get a beer and the sonic violence 3' above the LP was tremendous - sat back down quickly and it was gone. Maybe I just need to bring them down a couple feet and use FMBs to get a little "toe in" (or sit on a stack of phone books).
Good luck. You can always move them around later.

You got it, Mark. Either bring the QS8s down 2-3' or remain standing.

Alright I've done even more thinking, and it's come down to two Options:

Option A: Hang them from the ceiling, pointing slightly down and hanging "on the side" of the couch. Put one as far right as possible, and put the left one right before my closet door.

Option B: Hang them on the back wall, about 7 feet up, hang one 6" from the right wall, and the other 6" from the closet door.

thoughts? I can take more pictures if you need..

Sounds good. Flip a coin if you can't decide. The back wall installation definitely sounds easier to do. Try to have them symmetrically placed in relationship to your couch, though your receiver most likely has the ability to adjust surround speaker distances and levels.

i still like the idea of mounting them to the side(not back), but i agree with bigwill, we have dilly-dallied to much with this. flip a coin, grab a drill, and start puting them somewhere.

honestly, you seem to be over-concerned about this. dont obsess, you have plenty of time for that when it comes to getting a new receiver. the QS8's are gonna rock where ever you put them. so just git'er done and enjoy!!

WOW, the 3805.. that is a rockin unit. that was one of my final choices(or the 3803), but it was still a little out of my price range.

tell your dad their aint no use in installing a ceiling, cause you are just gonna be tearing it down once you get all that equip hooked up.

Yeah, silver 3805, Charcoal Smoke custom Axiom's, it's going to be good

Now one thing, if I do put them on the ceiling, I'm assuming I should line them up with the middle of the couch arms (distance form back wall)?
