I'll put it like this... It sounds like there is no speakers in a fixed position. What I mean by that is since all speakers blend perfectly with one another, pans from the rear in any direction to the front in any direction (also in vice versa) sound as if there are no gaps between the speakers.
The rears sound great BUT I did have to lower them in order to strike a correct balance between front and rear. The sides were lowered the most.
During the beginning of the forest scene in Transformers 2 where Optimus and Megatron start to go at it, there is a part where both robots throw each other to the floor while Sam is looking on. When the camera looks to Sam, you can hear EVERY intricate detail (movement, ambient, etc.), some of it with really nice impact, coming from exactly where it should be coming from according to your point of view dictated by the movie.
