I know this has been brought up before, but after looking at other threads I still haven't come up with a definate answer. I will be using Gale 3060 bipolars for the rear surrounds in a 5.1 system. I had settled on the majority vote of positioning them on the side walls, the problem is I can't position them in line with the sofa as I have one wall on the left (this would be OK), but a patio door on the right hand side. I can't mount them on the rear wall either as I have a staircase on the back wall. I could mount them on the side walls approximately 1-2 feet IN FRONT of the listening position, but would this sound odd, and not give enough rear surround fill? The only other option would be ceiling mount, how does this compare to side mounting? If ceiling mounting would work whereabouts should I mount them, i.e distance from side walls, directly above listening position? Also, if anybody has the Gale 3060's could they tell me how they are mounted? Thanks.
