Speaker placement in immersive sound installation

Hey folks,

Stumbled across this wealth of knowledge and really hoping someone here can give me some insight on an issue I’ve been mulling over.

I am a technical creative director for an entertainment company that creates tech focussed immersive experiences (vague I know). We are currently working on a new park and there’s one room in particular that I’m worried about acoustically. Imagine a perfect cube roughly 5m along each edge (not a good start) with a semi reflective floor and three of the four walls made up of large LED panel arrays similar to those used on large outdoor billboards. The fourth front wall is glass and the ceiling is a perforated mirrored Barisol material hiding some acoustic treatment. The person stands roughly in the middle of the room facing the glass wall and cameras film them dancing to a track while the screens create a super trippy background.

Where the hell do I put the speakers so that it doesn’t sound like a hot mess in there (anymore than it’s already going to). Current plans are to recess them into the ceiling but would mounting them head height towards the front of the room make any difference. the only areas we have that we could add any treatment is on the ceiling behind the acoustically transparent-ish Barisol material or on the top half of the front wall.

Note: It’s not necessary to make the room perfect – this isn’t a mastering suite or a home cinema even – but it would be good to get it as good as it can be within reason.

Any help would be amazing.
