I love my RS62's on the sides. They diffuse the sound and give a more enveloped experience than direct firing. I don't agree that you always want horns pointed at you. And let me tell you, the RS62 is a beast. It's a significantly different performer than the RS52. Yes, it was pricey, but nothing else will do the job it does. They run with the LaScalas all day, and that's saying something. Per a phone call I had with Klipsch directly, they recommend the RS62 as a higher performer than even the THX line of surrounds.
