I have read lots of threads about this but can't seem to find a consensus.

Should surround speakers be facing forwards into the room or facing each other (both orientations are above ear height in the room listed below).

For 5.1 surrounds are side speakers so they should be on the side walls facing into the MLP.

For 7.1 surrounds are the same as 5.1 but you also add surround backs which mount on the rear wall facing forward.

Here is a link to help you out.
