Can anyone give their thoughts on where I should place my rear speakers (direct radiators) in a non-THX 5.1 setup? It is very important I get it right due to the imminent build of my HC (garage conversion) I need to pre-run the speaker cables to the correct location B4 the plasterboard goes up. The Dolby website suggest rears should be placed on the side walls, three to six foot above the listeners ears firing at each other. However, other articles I have read suggest they should be placed on the rear walls firing forwards. My plan is to have the seating at the back of the room not the middle. In my previous HC room I had the rears at the back of the room on 3' high stands on the side walls toed in to the rear wall, therefore the sound was bouned off the rear wall to the listening position rather than firing directly at the listeners ears!! Is it really just a question of personal taste or are there some rules to this. My preference in terms of the new project is to wall mount them as per Dolby's recommendation.
