General rule of thumb for surrounds in a 5.1 setup is to the side of you, and slightly back.
But of not, behind you is prefered over ahead of you, even directly behind you is usually better than even slightly ahead of you.
And leave them plugged in as surround, not surround back, much more information goes to the side surrounds than the rears.
