Its maybe just the picture, but they look quite high up on your wall. Is that 2' above head height when seated? If not, I would lower them.Another recommendation for Silver FX’s.
For multichannel music, in many cases the rear channels in Blurays/ SACD’s, typically in music concerts, you’re better off with a more enveloping, diffuse soundfield, as it’s typically the crowd and the sense of scale and space of the venue that the rear speakers are achieving, while the music itself is primarily coming from the front array & sub.
So, for example, Hans Zimmer Live in Prague or Stevie Wonder Live at Last are excellent in 5.1 with rear FX’s.
Also in 5.1, with the FX’s, they’re mounted a little higher than directional speakers: approximately eye height while standing. This adds to the sense of scale and space and works really well for music.
When this would be less successful is if you wanted to go Atmos later, because the FX’s would be too close, and could compete with, rather than complement, any ceiling mounted Atmos speakers.
But for 5.1, they come highly recommended…
