Thinking about pulling my L&R speakers from behind the wall of screen.
On paper it works...
With the MLP and L&R 7' off their (front and rear) walls the MLP and L&R will form an 8' equalatteral triangle. The center will still be ~9' from the MLP and will be just behind the screen.
Pretty sure it will be at the expense of picture quality and picture size.
I won't know if I can shrink the image small enough to fit between the towers until I do it.
8' is pretty close though...
Tempting.

MLP would be 6' from side walls, 7' off the back wall and 8' from L,R,LRS & RRS.

Wait! I thought your room was acoustic perfection. Why are you doing this?

Lol. I didnt say that.
Kinda like hearing something you like from each speaker series, I often like the difference I hear with different speaker locations.

Looking back this is damn near what was suggested years back "Blairs Den V2" with the notable difference of the L&R being infront of the screen.

Projector Centrals calculator suggests it'll work with a 84" diagonal image.

I would be about that far from the screen.

Think I'll leave the speakers where they are and move the screen up to the new location.
Toy with the image quality there first.

Couldn't help myself.
Loving it.
Left the seats,subs and surrounds alone. Moved the wall of screen and LCR.
Screen size is perfect.
Haven't adjusted the focus yet but its already good enough for the moment.
L&R are 8' apart,2' off the side walls(tweeters) as planned.
Some interesting points of note already but I'll likely keep it (for a while). Lol.

Watching Curious George with my youngest.
Critical listening at its finest. Lol.
Seriously satisfied though.

How far away is MLP? And how far from the front wall are the fronts?
