In your situation in a corner, your kinda screwed right now. I would move the desk, and do a ceiling mount.
I agree, that setup the other guy drew is horible. You need the Center speaker straight infront of you, and the two side fronts need to be placed an equal distance away from your head.
For the best surround effect you would be better off to try to move the computer desk to the center of one of your walls and then place the rear speakers in the corners behind you.
It dosnt really matter where the sub goes, but I would say put it on the floor atleast, to get the best bass and least ammount of rattle from anything in your room.
I have the Z-5300e speakers, pretty much the same setup as the 5500's. The rear speakers dont really come with enough wire in my opinion. I Know mine arent 20' long. Maybe the 5500's come with more wire. But it takes a lot of wire to go a little ways when your trying to rout the wire the best you can, and this may seem obvious, but your setup is limited by where you place the sub cuz all the wires have to be routed to it...
In my setup I have my desk centered allong a wall but its pulled out about 15" or so from the wall, and the sub is behind the desk. Then all the front speakers are in the top 'hutch' part of the desk. Then the rear speakers are about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way back from the front wall. I just used the two big peices of styrefoam that came as packing with the speakers as speaker stands, lol. since there against the wall they dont get in the way. There kinda short, but when your sittin at the computer there only a few inches below where ur heads at. But I didnt want to drill holes in the wall so thats what I did.
My computer room is about 11' x 11'. But its only for the computer and dosnt have to be used as a bedroom or anything else, which is nice.
Surround sound is great thou and if you get it setup right youll love it! And the logitechs are great speakers, great choice!!!
