I'm in the final stages of completing an extension to the house. It's basically a single storey with a (very) vaulted ceiling. In the 'roof space' above, there's a small open mezzanine area for storage etc. (I suppose a bit like a landing or an internal balcony). The walls will be plastered and painted, not wallpapered.
Since we want the ground-level area to be as minimalist as possible, I've no doubt that any suggestion of mounting speakers into 'optimum' position will be met with the usual restistance The 'optimum position will be underneath the 'balcony'.
I'm pondering on the option of mounting speakers up on the mezzanine and 'bouncing' the sound down to the sofa off the wall opposite. Does anyone have experience of doing this? Would anyone care to postulate on just how much of a poor idea this is? Does anyone know if there's a website that might help me work out if this could ever work?
