Spreading Out Speaker Towers for Maximum Coverage

Okay, so you might not get that same 'sweet spot' if you were to set them up using this little guide, but there's no better way to maximize sound coverage in your home than spreading those speaker towers out as far as your cables can take you.

A few words of advice before proceeding:

Make Sure You Have the Right Speaker Cable: According to Audioholics, you're going to need a lower speaker gauge (AWG) when going longer distances. For example, at 10 feet, you can stay safe with 18 AWG, but if you're going closer towards 35 feet, 14 AWG might be a better idea.

Lower gauge cables are thicker in nature, but will allow for better sound quality and significantly less interference.

Consider Wire Control: No one likes watching a bunch of cords collect dust on the floor. Invest in some sweet floor running solutions and start policing that nonsense!

Add More Than Audio Equipment in Between: Okay, okay. We get it. You have a kick ass entertainment setup. But don't shove it all in our faces, we're here to be entertained, not heckled by a wall of technology devices.

Our favorite additions: a sofa, a bookshelf, and a bunch of artwork should do the trick.
