I am getting ready to replace my current 20 yr old Jmo speakers with 1961 Arendals. The question is do I use the Surrounds or Bookshelves for my surround speakers? You can see from the picture that my current surrounds are mounted on wall and near the rear wall of the room. I can move them a bit further off the back wall while still being slightly behind the sitting position but not by more than maybe 6 inches.
In this situation which is better – Surrounds or Bookshelves?
