    I am looking at the rockets rs250s for the rear surround speakers, but was wondering if they were back ported. If so, how are you owners placing them (I'm hoping to attach them to walls a couple feet behind the seating area). How are others out there making rear ported speakers work when attached to walls???

    They are rear ported. If you cross them over to a sub at 80Hz the rear port distance-to-wall is not as big an issue. I've got some rear ported RS550s in the back and they are about 6" from the wall which is plenty especially since they are crossed over at 80. I would image you could get even closer w/o serious issues.

    ...though I would like to hear from anyone else, using Rockets or not on their experience with rear ported speakers attached to walls with a bracket...
