My Polk Monitor 30's come with the wall mount bracket attached and are rear ported. My guess is that they are no more than 1-1.5 inches from the wall. I would hope that they would not design something that did not work properly.
Not only that, but the surround speakers don't get a ton of action so they aren't really moving a lot of air so I doubt it really matters too much.
