Should the rear surrounds be at the same height as the side surrounds? Does a diffence in height help, hurt, or have no effect on surround sound?

My rear surrounds will be about four feet behind the listening area and 44" to each side. The side surrounds are to each side of the listening area (90 degrees) and two feet above ear level (5.5 feet).

If you look at the Dolby and THX web sites.... BOTH recommend that for 7.0 speaker placement the side surrounds "should" be placed directly to the side and above the listening position. The rear surrounds behind and at the same height as the listening position.


It sound like you've got it nailed just about perfectly.
