Should I care about minor fore/aft difference in tripole surrounds?

    I am in the process of upgrading to a 7.1 configuration, and have selected M&K tripoles (Surround 55's) as my L/R surrounds. I would like to mount them to the wall directly to the sides of my seating position. On the left side this is no problem, as there's a stud inside my left wall that's perfectly placed. However, on the right side the wall stud is about 8 inches further back. Is this difference enough to be concerned about, or should I not really notice the difference since the tripoles will be diverting the sound anyway? Alternatively I can just mount the right speaker on the drywall, as according to the instructions on my speaker mounts (Omnimount) this is okay, but it seems to me that it would be much safer to mount it on wood. Anyone have any stories, good or bad, about mounting speakers on drywall?
