    Hello all,
    This is my first post to this forum, and my first foray into setting up a home theater... [​IMG] At the moment I'm considering getting the Diva package (4.1's, 2.1's, and C3) but I don't know where to place the rears. My room is about 13x22 with an 11ft vaulted ceiling. About 3 feet behind my couch is an open doorway to the kitchen (11ft width x 7ft height), to the right is a fireplace and the patio doors, and to the left are some builtin bookshelves. My question is, would I be better off wall mounting the rears behind the couch, even if they are substantially higher than my fronts? Or would I be better off putting the rears on stands? I don't have enough room for stands behind the couch but I could put one on either side.
    Thanks in advance,
    Dave

    High on the rear wall, spread as far as you can spread them, 3 feet behind the sofa would work really well!
