If you had a 55" or 60" monitor on a stand, the speakers would be about 7 feet center-to center.
This is essentially what I have.
We sit about 9 to 10 feet from the screen, which works out nicely.
We have a 2.1 system for music and movies, and the speakers are toed in about 15 degrees. Since those speakers have front ports, the distance from the rear wall should not be critical at all.
I suggest a set of good rigid steel stands for those speakers.
The Sanus Steel Foundations stands run about $120 and are very good.
The center column should be filled with steel or lead bird shot for mass and stability (available at your local sporting goods store).
