    I have my MORADAUNT SHORTS set up about 5 feet from ground level ( about two feet from head height when sat ) and next to my listening position. However my room is wide and I have about a 6 foot gap between me and each speaker

    Confucius speaks words of wisdom.

    In fact, it's only true DI-polar speakers which need to be positioned on the side walls so that you sit in the "null" zone where the two opposing drivers cancel each other out.

    Bipoles are designed to wrap the sound around you and are much less localized than monopole speakers. Put 'em where you like!
