Phil was nice enought to help me out in the last thread about surround speakers. Decided on JBL E10's that will be place very high on the walls, to the side and facing listening position. I was going to place them slightly behind listening area until I decided to splurge and pick up a pair of JBL N24's to use as surround backs (since my receiver supports 6.1 and a virtual 7.1-will upgrade to ful 7.1 when the Pio 1015tx comes out). My quesions is the surround backs. I will have to place them on stands. My sectional is 2 ft or so from rear wall. I will be able to place them about 2ft or so above ear level (as opposed to surrounds which will be a couple of " below ceiling (no right side wall). The rear surrounds will only be a foot or so behind me. Should I go this route or place the rears behind the sctional firing up towards the ceiling? Obviously I will have to try both, just wondering if anyone has run across the saem type of setting. Thanks.
