Hi All, I was reading through the User Manual (Yes, I am one of the sick ones that must read ALL of my User Manuals) for my Hitachi 46F500 Rear Projection HDTV. I noticed that within the section describing speaker placement for an external home theater sound system, the speakers should be evenly distributed within 3 to 4 feet from the sides of the TV screen. The strange thing is that the suggested speaker placement for my home theater (Onkyo) suggests that the speakers be placed right next to the sides of the TV, about an inch or two away. Can someone give me the definitive answer as to where my speakers need to be placed to get the best movie theater sound possible when watching a DVD? Thanks!
