I don't remember noticing too much of an issue with basic ambient sounds but when you get "wind" or "woosh" style sounds that are fairly loud and last more than half a second, the effect is noticeable. I seem to notice it a lot in movie previews that have surroundsound, probably because most of the preview is action/intense driven.
They are a dipole tweeter design, single woofer, dual tweeters.
It's not that I'm expecting to hear exactly where on the wall that the sound is coming from, but instead, sense that the sound is coming from past the wall, not in front of the wall, it just sounds off. I know that the surround speakers are roughly 6 feet away from my head, but sometimes they sound like they are literally a foot away from my head.
Haha, man this is hard to describe.
There is a very good chance that it is just reflections from the opposite wall interfering with the oncoming sound that is causing the effect. I say this because when I play the AVR test tones out of the left or right speaker only, I can hear the reflection from the opposite wall..
