I'm building a home theater with 2 rows of seats. The 2nd row will be on an 8 inch riser. Do I need a pair of surrounds for each row of seats, or a single pair of surrounds(such as a bipole/dipole)on the 2nd row only? I know the surrounds should be at ear level when standing, so if I do need a pair for each row, should I place the first row at ear level and the 2nd row also at ear level although the 2nd row is 8 inches higher? Or should each pair be placed at the same height? Any help would be appreciated.
