    If you have to wall mount then at least 6 feet apart to give you some kind of stereo image. The wider the better. 8-9 feet would be ideal. The centre will handle most of the dialogue and the L/R fronts will be effects speakers.
    Having the speakers a decent distance apart will also help if you play 2 Channel CD's through your system. The imaging and soundstage will be more accurate. improving the overall performance of the system.

    It depends on how far away from the screen you are sitting.
    One popular theory is the triangle - you should place the speakers the same distance apart as the distance you are sitting from them.
