    A couple of questions for you guys :)

    1. Is it ok if my surrounds speakers are about 4.5 feet above the listener's ears, I have been told that is best to put them 2-3 feet above the listeners ears, why 2-3 is best? I mean what will be a problem if they are put higher?I am refering at bi-polar surrounds speakers which will be placed on the side walls.

    2. I was told that the surround speakers should be also be 2 feet from the back walls, well due the usual sofa problem , the distnace can only be 1 feet from the back wall, again what will be that be a problem if is only 1 feet from the back wall rather than 2 feet.

    3. The surround pack will it be ok if is on the same height with the surrounds? I was told that that it should be on the same height with the center.

    Thanks in advance

    Ps

    I know that the above questions were discussed before but I failed to find explanations of the reasoning , ie why for example,it should be 2-3 feet rather than 5 feet above the listeners ears
