Please help me position my rears before I mount them

Hey guys,


I'm about to get my two rear surrounds mounted on the 28th. I've got someone coming by to do the install, but I want to make sure that they're going to mount them in the optimal spot. Would love some input.


To start with, here is what I currently have:
Onkyo TX-NR777
Klipsch Synergy F1 Speaker (L+R)
Klipsch Synergy C10 (Center)


The rears I'm mounting are two Definitive Technology Mythos Gem (not XL).



The L/R speakers are currently 6 feet apart, the viewing position is about 7 feet from the center channel, ear height is about 3 3/4th feet off the ground, my ceiling is about 8 feet high.


I can't mount these on side walls or back walls, this will have to be ceiling mounted.


With that in mind, I'm wondering how close to/far behind the listening position should these go, and how far apart? Also what should the orientation of the speakers be?


Additionally, I do not yet have ceiling mounts for them yet, if anyone has any suggestions for a good mount that would work for these, please let me know. Note that I live in Vancouver, Canada and would heavily prefer something that I can buy off Amazon here, or a local store.


Thanks very much in advance. Please let me know if there is any additional info that I can provide that could help!


Cheers

Vizio P75-F1 // Onkyo TX-NR777 // Sony UBP X700 BD
Klipsch Synergy F1 Speaker (L+R) // Klipsch Synergy C10 (Center)
Definitive Technology Mythos Gem (Rear Surrounds)

The entire bed layer including rears are explained here with quick formulas to find the tolerances. Atmos is episode 3 if you need it.

I bought these for my surrounds: https://www.primecables.ca/p-370483-...atalog%2318879

They work great, can hold a speaker as wide as about 11", and they hold up to 55lbs. Plus, it's a Canadian company.

EDIT: Never mind! I overlooked that you are looking for ceiling, not wall mounts...

Home Theatre: Onkyo TX-NR747 | Polk Audio RTi A3 Front L/R | Polk Audio CSi A6 Centre | Polk Audio RTi A1 Surround L/R | HSU ULS-15 MK2 Subwoofer | Sony XBR55X900E | PlayStation 4 Pro | Xbox One S

Music: Cambridge Audio AXR100 | Stanton T.62 | Cambridge Audio AXC35 | KEF Q150 L/R | Elac S10EQ Subwoofer
