I have never heard of such a suggestion or even statement of the problem. Is your center not behind your L and R? If so, how possibly could it interfere with even early reflections??? Can you get some justification on the cause of interference from Rives?

Do you mean that when playing two channel - only the left and right front speakers in use - that the center speaker would interfere - presumably because of its physical presence blocking the sound somehow? The idea of raising the center speaker for that reason sounds really goofy.

Unless the center channel has some rather interesting geometry, I fail to see how you cannot alleviate any path by which sound reflected off the center channel enclosure would eventually reach your ears. While I can appreciate the pursuit of purity, but unless your center is huge, I'm not seeing an identified problem in any appropriately treated room.
|Well, regarding the three "options" Mr. Richard has given you, the third should be the case anyway for HT. You want front speaker equidistant from the listener|
|Remember, only low frequencies are omnidirectional, and the center is small compared to their wavelengths.|
