You really don't need to have your surround speakers tilted down.
From the elevation of your ears, while seated, your surrounds should be no more than 2' higher to the midpoint of the speakers.
My PT800s and L212s are about 24" tall and the wall mounted surrounds are 58" above the floor to the midpoint of that 24". That's all the elevation you need for surrounds and my seat backs are quite high.
Custom, one of a kind pair, MJC212 mains, mod PT800 center, PT800 surrounds, SUB1500s. Parasound P7, Citation 19, Parasound HCA2205A, HK AVR3600, Marantz TT, Samsung BD player, Denon DVD-A player, MacBook Pro w/ Dirac Stereo Suite.
