What is the ideal placement of the surround speakers, for multichannel music? Assume monopole speakers. I'm assuming that optimal placement is different than movie placement. For movies, we want the surrounds to be as diffuse as possible, so we place them above the listening area, use dipole, etc, etc. I'm guessing that with multichannel music, we want directional surrounds. So where do you put them? How high? Do you point them at the center of the listening area, or do you want to point them at the outside "corners" of the listening area? How do you compensate for the back of the couch in all of this? I imagine that there's no one correct answer (we can't agree on speaker placement for 2 channel ), but perhaps you could describe your implementation, if it's working out well for you. Thanks, Martin.
