I bought a home theater in a box, the Samsung 5.1 setup. It's good enough for me and I am happy with the sound.

But I have a question. The Blu-Ray player supports 3D but I do not use this feature as I cannot stand 3D. It has these sound settings called "vertical surround" and the options of Low, Off and High. I have the surround speakers position a little behind and to the sides of my listening position, and when the vertical surround is on High, I got all the little extra sounds like people laughing in the background and stuff, but everything else is SO LOUD. And playing piratically right in my ears. Turning it on Low or Off and I seem to lose a lot of the background effects, and my subwoofer isn't as active when the vertical is turned off.

So here's my question - what does the vertical surround do, exactly? Does it need to be on? Am I giving myself TOO much sound from the speakers? Or should I try to move them further back, along the back wall, about 4 feet from where I am sitting? I read the side placement is ideal for 5.1. but the sound from the speakers seems overwhelming in that position.

Any advice would be appreciated!
