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).
The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and the Custom Electronics Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) created a partnership in 2009 to create a set of home theater design standards. CEB-22, Home Theater Recommended Practice: Audio Design, is the first document to be released from this effort. The guide outlines recommendations for the audio design of high performance home theaters.
