Where do I put all these speakers in my 5.1 or 7.1 channel home theater? That's the question we tackle in this article. There are three main organizations that provide guidance on speaker placement. They are THX, Dolby and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). THX and Dolby guidance is directed principally for movie production and reproduction whilst the ITU recommendations are targeted primarily at music.
