Ok, so I am thinking about building a new house. One of my biggest obstacles is how can I place my speakers for my 7.1 system around a great room. The easiest solution would be to place the speakers in the ceiling, or close to the ceiling in a soffit that comes down from the ceiling a foot. The room dimensions that I am building are 18' by 18'. Will I be sorry placing the speakers so high? Would it be better to have them in the ceiling pointing down, or in a soffit pointing in towards the center of the room? In that dimension room, where would you place the speakers? (How many feet back from the front wall for the side speakers, How far apart for the rears?) Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
