    I have M&K S150 LCR THX Ultra speakers that I have aligned at the listening position with a laser tool. My side surrounds are M&K THX Select direct radiating Surround 550s. They are mounted on the wall about 3-3.5 feet above seated ear level and they are currently parallel with the floor aiming straight across the room at each other. They are on the sides but actually just slightly behing the listening position. They sound good as is, but should I be actually pointing them in and down toward the sweet spot like the mains and center? I didn't know if there was a recommendation for direct radiating surrounds or if it is just personal preference. Anyone have any opinions or suggestions? I would think that might make them too directional, but by keeping them parallel and straight across would add a little ambient effect.
