Ok I am contemplating changing my current setup. My new setup will be this: Room has dimensions of about 10'x 12' (guesstimate) At front of room will be TV with center channel and towers At the back of the room will be a couch Now I have some questions about setup. At the Dolby website they recommend having the rear channels about three feet above the seated position. I plan to slowly upgrade my speakers, and the surrounds I want can't be mounted on the wall, they have to use stands. Should I get stands as tall as I can? The tallest stands I have found are 42" tall, but would a 36" stand work as well? Does it really matter how high the surrounds are in practical listening? The couch seat is about 15" or so off the ground. I will be using the system for movies and multichannel listening (SACD and Pro Logic II). Now on to placement of speakers. Right now I have the front three speakers lined up with each other. Should I bring the towers out in front of the center channel or leave them alone. I'm thinking leave them alone due to the small size of my room. For the surround speakers I am going to have them slightly to the rear of the seating position, but not completely behind as it is recommended on the dolby sight. They will be rather close to the wall though, is there any problems you have encountered with this? Thanks for any help you can provide.
