Yes this is so true. Which makes it all the more difficult to evaluate the effectiveness of a particular layout. For any layout changes you make, you will have to listen to the setup for a *long* time with a lot of different source material to see the effect of the changes.

I seem to remember watching 7.1 BluRays where a character on screen was being repeatedly shot by someone who would be situated behind the camera/MLP and there were very loud and full gunshots from directly behind me. I remember thinking "I'm glad I got decent bookshelf speakers back there instead of something small that could only go down to 120Hz or so." I even seem to recall getting a similar effect from 5.1 material using PLIIx. But I haven't heard the effect in quite a while, and I just happened to have moved my speakers around. Perhaps something is "wrong" or perhaps I haven't listened to anything recently with aggressive rear sound.

So, maybe it's a matter of me discovering decent source material with which to test the issue. Not just movies, but a list of particular scenes from movies (at least some of which I own or could rent). I've been looking for such a list online, but have yet to find one.

Corrections or additions? Please PM me and I will edit the document.

@ tang : they will work for sure.

But they are designed to be wall mount. On stands, you might find them too "localizable"... But again, depends on the user. Some people prefer direct effects rather than being surrounded by ambience... But I've had that kind of surrounds on stands in the past, and they did a ok job!
