Hallo, I have 5.1 system (Q Acoustics 3010i) going to expand to 5.1.2 (Polk Audio PMW3) and I have question where to place overhead speakers. As you can see the picure my confiig is not typical home theater, iam sitting close to wall/window and my front speakers are angeled toward listening position. I use this system mainly for gaming.

Where would you place overhead speakers? Just above listening/sitting position? Same distance as are front speakers?

See if you can place the top sides on your side left and right, like a stereo at the top of you.
The centre point between the speakers should be just above you.
And see if the receiver has auto calibration, it seems you will require it.
