Hello folks.
I hope someone ,and multiple people can weigh in on my question. Ive asked all over the internet and have recieved only 1 answer and he knew less then me lol.

So i live in a 10x10room. I have recently purchased an vizio 5.1.2 sound bar. I also have a vizio P55-F1 tv as well as an xbox one.

1. Is the sound bar total over kill would i be fine with out a dolby 5.1.2(it was less rhen 399.00)
As for the satellite speakers where should i put them(will have a stand this friday one for each side) and where should i properly place the subwoofer. I currently have a 3 tier shelf and there is room under the tv for the bar is that the best place for it? Also wall mounting is out of the question.

If it's overkill, up to you, if you like how it sounds and don't mind spending the money. What someone else would buy does not matter if you are OK with paying for it. If you have neighbors, then the system is probably too much since you are not likely to be able to play the thing very loud without getting complaints. A standard soundbar without a sub may be better for you, but again, that depends on you and your situation.

Placement, rear speakers go behind you, usually in the corner of the room. Sub does not matter much, you can play around with the placement to get the sound you like. The closer to a wall it is, the more present the bass would be, same thing for what it's on, hard floor, rug, what is around it, all make a difference.
