    I have some Wharfedale Diamond DFS-18 Rear Speakers and need to get them on the wall.

    The problem I have, they are both mounted on the rear wall, but one of them will be very close to a side wall (probably 10cm away). Is this ok? or will sound quality suffer?

    If I bring it into the room more, then they won't be directly behind me properly.. and they'll be close together. They are already too close together anyway according to the manual but it can't be helped. (Only be about 1.8m - 2.0m apart..)

    Thanks for any help.

    It's not so much the distance between the speakers that matters but the angles from your listening position. According to the ITU specifications (see http://www.dolby.com/consumer/home_entertainment/roomlayout.html) they should be between 90 and 110 degrees from the centre channel. Personally if you don't have a centre rear I'd go for more like 110-120 degrees...
