I wasn't able to mount the panels on the ceiling due to how low they would have come. I'm 6' and I have only inches before the top of my head rubs against it. Anybody else taller would be hitting it with their head so I didn't even bother. With that being said, I mounted them on the side walls next to the speakers, higher up toward the ceiling and the sound did improve quite noticeably. The imaging is still not wear I want it to be, but it is better. The sound itself is much smoother, clearer and more natural sounding without the room adding nearly as much funky-ness to it. I'm not in a surround processing mode, just straight decode.
I'm terrible at diagrams, but if it would help, I'll take a video of the room showing you the layout and where my headaches come in. I moved the speakers out from the front wall a little more and that did help quite a bit as well. I can't move the speakers out further anymore because the door to the room is right in the corner of the room in the front of the room. If I move the speaker away from the wall anymore, it'll be completely blocking the door and I can't move it more in to the room because then it'll be in front of the screen. You'll see what I'm talking about in the video.
