Ive seen on Dolby's site the recommendation that if you cannot side mount (either on a wall, or via stands) your surround speakers, to place them, "a couple of feet" above the ground, on their back, and behind your couch.. kind of near the ends. This is what im aiming to do right now. Has anyone done this? How are the results? Does the sound seem natural? What did you do for stands / places for it to rest? How high/low relative to your ear was the speaker? Any and all information would be great! thanks.
