I have a large greatroom with the TV on a wall which faces a family room area (with couch about 17 feet away from wall) then a kitchen area. So opposite wall is over 30 feet away from TV. I’m trying to retire speaker stands for rear surrounds. The room is about 20 feet wide where the couch sits.
Will installing the surrounds (ERA 300 or SL1 for an ARC, Sub) on the side walls at 90-110 degrees from seating area result in a supported soundfield? The docs just say to the rear or side but the marketing material seems to all show rear placement only.
For stereo use I suspect they need to be facing the same plane so they can do their spatial wizardry correctly but as surrounds it appears they basically act as ‘dumb’ bipole-like speakers which seems like would work fine as I propose.
