I used the search feature for this on the forums and got some that were way off of what I was trying to find and some with different opinions.


On Dolbys site they have the back speakers angled towards the seating area at a 90 to 100 degrees.

I've seen other sites and opinions saying the surrounds can be directly to the left and right of the seating area. Both say they should be about 1 to 2 foot above the ears but I'm confused as to which position the rears should be. I know 7.1 you have them to the left and right and behind but I'm looking at 5.1. The main reason I'm asking this is because I can EASELY get my room situated to be able to use the back speakers directly to my left and right instead of behind me. Also, If I just have my speakers directly to the left and right and not at an angle like it should be will there really be THAT much of a difference? The way I have my room, the back wall is too close to where I sit so the speakers wouldn't work slightly behind me and if I move my "gaming chair" any closer to the TV I will be close to it.


Should they be behind angled, or directly to the left and right?

So anywhere from 90 to 100 degrees.

That's what I thought. 90 degrees is directly to the left and right. But the drawing was just confusing me a little.

I guess they have them offset a little to show you the 100 degree. :/


If I put them directly to my left and right and the way I WANT my room they will be at like 5" from the wall....which I think will not sound as good as being away from a wall and slightly behind at 100 degrees.
