Think the entire length of the sofa as a sweet spot. That’s a good start. 

For the heck of it, here's the rough outline of my Living room. It's one of those "great rooms" with cathedral 
ceiling, kitchen and dining room off to the left about the same width but longer (stairs behind stereo wall to 
basement and loft). Huge pine beams span the entire space and all the walls and ceiling are pine boards. 
The realtor called it a "lodge".

         window


DH and I sit against a wall with another window behind us, there is no wall behind the sofa. I just 
measured and thereis ~16.5 feet between our eyes and the front of the TV. According to various charts, 
anywhere from about 6ft to 17.5 feet is good enough though Crutchfield says 9 feet is their farthest limit. 


I suppose I could move our seats closer, it's a recliner for DH and a glider/rocker with foot stool for me. 
But then we'd have to run extension cords to the table lamp and our laptops (or drill another hole in 
the floor and stick in a floor outlet, it's what we've done for the sofa tables just without the outlet, 
there's a fat cord coming up under the sofa from the basement) and what would we do with the weird little 
space behind us? Maybe I'll try it just for grins and see >what DH (let's call him Hal, he needs a name) 
thinks when he comes home tonight. ;-) First I need to put the Swedish meatballs together.
