Should I place the second pair of Klipsches as the side surrounds or the rear surrounds in my 7.1 setup? Not sure what will give a more convincing surround effect -- having the moire powerful surrounds on the sides or in the back. Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
Most soundtracks are mixed in 5.1. I would use the better speakers as side surrounds and the other 2 as either front height or on ceiling atmos channels if your AVR supports it.
