    I understand that the surronds should be located behind the listening area, but how far is too far. My first choice is on a wall about ten feet behind the main listening area. I also have the option of having them directly beside the main listening area. Which would be better

    Rick,

    To receive some good replies, you will need to provide a bit more information. Drop another post with the following type of information and you will get more replies:

    1) What type of surrounds? Direct radiating, bipolar, etc.....?
    2) How much space is behind your seating position before you hit a wall, etc....?

    Certain types of surround speakers require very specific positioning to get the most out of them.

    Rick,

    You may also want to note how many rows of seating you have. Personally, I believe the best location for surronds is about 1-2 feet behind where you will be seated (front row?), and if direct radiating...slightly angled forward.
