The Dolby guide in the link above is what I'd go with but there is some wiggle room as far as placement on an equal plane with your ears since those ProMonitor satellite speakers are usually mounted on a wall with the articulating mounts. Running Audyssey and using a few mic locations will improve sound quality quite a bit even though they might not be set up exactly to Dolby/THX specifications. You can only set them up as best you can in the room they are in.
I wouldn't consider Best Buy as a gauge on how to set them up. Best Buy usually just throws the stuff on a wall or shelf with little or no regard as to what the best setup would be. I doubt they even did any room correction.
