I know that my surround speakers should be beside my ears or slightly behind them. But because there is a door beside my couch I'm forced to place them about 3 feet behind my ears. Im not sure if that is ok. What do you think? Will i get good surround sound with them in that position? Or, is there a better alternative? Thanks

Should be OK -- that is one of the originally suggested positions for a 5.1 system (within 60 degrees of the listening position). You might like them turned a bit more off axis, aimed a bit behind the couch rather than right at it, to "open up the ambience" a bit more.
