Put the surrounds around the sofa. It will look weird but sound good.

To lower your costs, you should consider the used market like Canuck audio mart. You may find good deals there. Every now and then, there are also good buys in usedottawa or kijiji ottawa.

If $500 is the budget I'd go with a simple soundbar of sorts and forgo any sort of surround sound at all.

I'd rather have one good speaker up front and center than half a dozen or so crappy speakers around the room.

My 2 cents.
