    Hi guys, for my new rears I'll be picking up Polk Fxi3's. In the pics below is where I could possibly place them. Being that there's a short wall right behind the viewing area would placing them where I've circled in red(in dipole mode) be more advantageous than mounting them where I've circled in green? Or would the sound still reach me fine(remember; wall)by putting them on the rear wall, circled in green(in bipole). Thanks

    So does a basket of dirty socks act as a HDTV tuner or what?[​IMG]

    I'd go with the red option and if necessary play with moving the couch out just a bit.
