After reading the myriads of threads on "couch on back wall, where to place speakers", I've decided to mount the rear speakers of my 5.1 system on the side walls pointing towards each other. However, I've also read that the speakers shouldn't be placed directly in the corners. How far away from the back wall should the speakers be placed? I would think you'd want them as far back as possible, somewhere behind the listeners ears if possible, but how close to the wall is too close?
Also, should I try to angle these speakers slightly towards the back wall in an effort to reflect the sound from behind the listener? Or is the usual 'above the listeners ears by 2-3 feet and pointing at each other' still the best recommnedation?
Just for background, the speakers are part of the Yamaha YHT-399UBL HTIB.
