I am seeking advice on a room layout which I cannot change unless I get some major work done. I have postponed my purchase previously as well but I wanted to check with the experts in this group once before giving up on buying a home theater setup.\n\n1. First challenge - photo attached. Shape of the room is L and there is a dining area in the smaller side of the L shape. The living room is rectangular and the TV is on the long end. I can move the sofa close to the TV by a few feet but unless I do major changes to the electrical wiring, its impossible to move the TV on the short wall. \n\n2. Second challenge. My apartment entrance is right beside the TV (55 inch) which gives hardly any space for speaker placement. I have a TV unit under the TV that has 5.5 feet of space to place bookshelf speakers and center channel. I am afraid the speakers would be too close together and might not have the best listening experience. One feedback I received from a friend was about the lack of separation with LCR and he said that the LCR would sound like a mono speaker if I have to put it within 5.5 feet of space. \n\nAs mentioned earlier, I will have to some major construction work to move the electrical, cable connection to the other wall. I was planning to get a KEF speaker system but wanted to check in this forum if I will be just shoving my money down the drain with the challenges I have. \n\nThanks.
