Question on speaker positioning

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all. I was looking at the "computer room pics" thread and noticed there are a lot of 5.1 speaker setups with 5 speakers, all on the desk.

http://www.overclock.net/case-mods-g...-pics-301.html

This page, (page 301) scroll down to trezegol13. 3rd picture.

I have similar speakers but have been waiting to figure out how to install them "correctly". 2 front, 2 rear, center and sub-woofer. Does this setup, all on the desk, sound good? Can the volume/positioning be properly adjusted?
If I can get away with that, It'll make things a lot easier.

If i were you i would set them up in 5.1

they should sound better when they are setup correctly.

I have mine kinda on the sides of me (the rear speakers) and they do pretty well. Unfortunately computer speakers don't really have long enough wires to get the rears behind me, room just isn't set up right for that.
