    There are many methods to this but if you use the equalateral triangle method(common), 9 ft.

    Considering your sitting only 9 ft. away, 6 FT. should be just fine. You should get good imaging and separation at this distance.
    I sit 8ft. away from my mains and center in my dedicated theater room, my mains are about 7.5ft. apart. I have experimented and 7.5ft. apart seems to be the perfect distance for both HT and music.
    I also have a surround system in my living room and sit about 12 ft. away and I run my mains about 6 ft. apart with great results.
