I know you guys get these a lot...but...here goes anyway. I just purchased some dipole speakers...actually they should be tripole I guess, and was wondering how to place them. My biggest problem is that I cannot get them 2-3 feet above the listening position to the ideal surround speaker position. I live in an apartment, and I don't think I'm allowed to drill nails that support 15 lb speakers. So at ear level, should I point the speakers straight up? The salesperson was telling me that because they are dipole/omnipole type speakers it was fine to aim them directly at the listener. But when I listened to some movies, I found them kind of intrusive. Aiming them up has helped a bit, but since they are right against my back wall, I'm wondering if I'm getting the proper dispersion. Please let me know how you would place the speakers.
