I know a diagram would help, but my "paint" app is on the fritz, so I'll try to describe my issue.

I'm trying to set up a 5.1 HT where the primary seating area is in the form of an L-shaped modular sofa stuck in the corner of our basement, flush to the walls. Because of this, it is not possible to install rear surround speakers behind the viewer - the best I could do would be right above them. Furthermore (and again, I apologize for the lack of a diagram), the TV cannot be centred relative to the sofa - it has to be placed a few feet left of centre because of fireplace issues.

I realize I am unlikely with this set up to get very good rear surround effect, but no other layout is possible. Given this, am I likely to get better rear surround from (a) in-wall speakers mounted in the ceiling facing down; (b) in-wall speakers mounted in the walls above the sofa; or (c) small wall or ceiling mounted cube speakers like Bose that are "aimed" in such a way as to compensate for the fact viewers will be sitting right up against the back wall.

Any comments much appreciated.
