Below is what I have:
Denon AVR 1912
Front: Klipsch KF-28
Center: Klipsch KC-25
Rear: Klipsch KS-14
Sub: Klipsch SW-450

My surround sound system is set up in my upstairs room which is about 20x26. Occasionally, the sound comes across distorted like it is going through a fan before I hear it. It also happens more often when I sit in certain places in the room. I have 2 questions:

1. Could the positioning of my speakers cause the distortion?
2. There is a cut out in the wall to my back over looking the downstairs. The cut out is about 10 x 10. Can a big hole in the wall cause distortion? the surround faces it directly for the most part.

I am new to this so let me know if you need any more info. Thanks in advance!

In general the answer to both of your questions would be no. It's difficult to say with any certainty, however, without actually hearing the system and its problem and performing some tests to check for specific issues.

My first guess would be set up of the surround systems' values. If your receiver has a "default" setting, you might begin again at that point and determine whether the problem still exists.
