    A few weeks ago I was browsing audio and HT magazines at our local library. I think I saw an article suggesting an unorthodox placement of surround speakers. I thought it spoke of "side" surrounds at slightly less than 90 degrees. As a matter of curiosity, I have tried to "refind" that material, but to no avail. I'm thinking it was probably in the "usual suspects" of audio/HT magazines.

    At this point, I'm not sure if I really did see such an article, or if I misinterpreted something (it was browsing session, not a reading session), or just dreamed it.

    Has any seen anything relatively recently, regarding non-conventional placement of surround speakers? I don't even remember the context, but think it must have been 7.1 because it would make even less sense for 5.1.

    The Dolby Guide to Home Theater has an "Alternative surround speaker placement alternatives" section that discusses different ways to place surrounds; like facing upwards from behind, bouncing the sound off the back and/or side walls at various angles, etc.
