    I have seen plenty of threads about rear placements but not so much about Rear centres.

    I am in a similar scenario as most i wouls expect in that my sofa is right against the rear wall so....

    do i have the rear centre high below the coving or low just above the sofa?

    i have mine in the same horizontal line as my rear surrounds.

    same scenario as your front centre, to your front left and right, really.

    Scrapbook, I'm in the same position... my couch is like 1 foot from the wall. I have mine (I have 7.1) on the same horizontal height as my rears. I had them much higher but it sounded odd.

    Also, I use a bi-pole speaker as it sounds far better than direct radiating ones... for some reason the sound sounded like it was in front of me?!??!

    In which case that creates a slight dilemma for me!

    Although not ideal I was going to place the rear speakers on the rear wall too rather that the side walls (primarlily because they look neater either side of a big mirror) and the rear centre a couple of feet higher over the centre of the mirror.

    If all three should be in a horizontal line would you recommend they were higher rather than lower.

    I notice from the Dolby web site that they recommend if you must have rear speakers on the rear wall to make them high up so there is less sense of directional hearing.
