ive been searching for the best location for my rear speakers so that i could get best surround audio out of them. here are pics of what my options are, i got some answers but im still uncertain of what to do. Posted Image Uploaded with ImageShack.us its either mounting them behind the wall but seperate them as far as i can, or have them mounted at each side facing down, i ordered wall mounts with swivel so that i can play around with it FYI - from the wall on the picture to the middle is around 11.5feet and from the wall on the other side to the middle is 9.1 feet but i heard that the system calibrates it, i have a yapo mic or something like that, i think that calibrates them automatically. which is perferable? , i was told that mounting them on the sides are better then behind and separated.

Mine are about in your "swivel down" spot as it was the only option I had; they don't sound too bad there. I was told that mounting them on the sides are better too, but have no experience to compare.

Can you get stands and place them on either side of your seating (facing each other)?
