Would this surround placement be bad??

    Just got my Axiom QS4s. While trying to line up the bracket with a stud I discover it is not possible to place them where I was going to. Around 3' up on the wall directly behind my couch. They would have been right at each end of the couch. My next option is putting them around 4' up and 2' out from the listening area. Still on the wall directly behind the couch. Would this be a bad placement??

    BTW side wall placement is not an option.

    That is better then my placement option.

    Ideally, IMO, they do not fire directly at your listening position. I think some people like this but the surrounds can draw more attention to themselves this way.

    I just realized that I don't know if you surrounds are dipoles. If dipoles, I would be curious to hear from you if it works out. With direct firing, you can play with angling to get the balance of direct vs indirect sound you are looking for out of your surrounds.
