Okay my speaker setup is Polk RTI A5 mains, CSI A6 center, and FXI A6 surround sound, my sub will probably end up being a SVS PB1000...trying to figure out the FXI A6 placement as I am about to finish my floors and need to route my wires before doing so...

This panoramic picture shows the setup, the couch will go to the right of the patio door and you can see approximately where the TV will be with the tape on the wall. It is approximately 9 feet from the "TV" to the door so the seating position will be approximatley 7.5 to 8 feet from the TV. 

 

The FXI A6 won't fit between the door and the window, only 10.5 inches so I can mount it above the door however that is approximately  6.75 feet tall, is that fine? There is a pillar on the other side so I can easily meet match it's height on that side.

 

I also have the option of mounting them at whatever height I want if I mount them on the back wall however the back wall is almost 15 feet away from the location I discussed above, so it will be just a little less than 15 feet from the back of the listening position.

The other side, you can see the column I could mount the other side on (right of the blue broom with the dark sticks leaning on it), as you can see I cannot mount it to the left of the patio door as straight across from that location it opens up into the kitchen

So what do you guys think, mount them at 6.75 feet off the floor or 15 feet behind seating position?
