Please Give me hand Locating my new 5.1 Speakers

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi friends!

Well, i bought a new Onkyo HT-S3305 HTiB audio System for my tv/mediacenter. Its just AMAZING!

But, as the place where it is located is "complex". im having some problems with location of the speakers.

Here you have 3d graphics of the room its placed, and Location config that came to my mind:


Click to Enlarge


The main problems that i see with that config are:
1) The Front speakers are NOT equally distant to the BED ( from where I use it the 90% of the time)
2) The Center Speaker isn't "shooting" directly to the Bed (i mean, its not diagonally directioned.)
3) The SURROUND speakers location may not be good (im not sure about this)


So, im open to an suggestions! Any help or advice will be extremely thanked!

use you onkyo manual to find the menu delay settings. its mancave science so you will need bandaids.

Time delay formula

tdelay = (dmax - dmon) / c

Where:

tdelay is the time delay needed to ensure that the monitor sound arrives at the same time as the others
dmax is the maximum distance of any of the monitors to the listening position
dmon is the distance of the closer monitor to the listening position
c is the speed of sound in air at 20°C at sea level = 344m/s
Example:

The centre channel monitor is 2.12 m from the listening position. The left and right monitors are both 2.46 m from the listening position The time delay required on the centre channel is:
tdelay = (2.46 - 2.12) / 344 = 988 µs (so set the delay unit to 1ms)
