Hi - When using bookshelf direct-radiating speakers as rears mounted on the rear wall, should they be toed-in (directed toward the seating position) at all?


Available mounting position, due to poorly placed window on rear wall, puts them a bit to the outside of the listening position, which isn't ideal. Didn't really want to get into floor stands as toddler could knock over. Could use wall mounts if necessary, swivel a bit more towards the middle of the room.


Also, how high should rear speakers be - same as the side surrounds, or is it okay if they are lower?



Thanks

Thanks, I've seen this (and a similar one, maybe THX?), but it only really talks about speaker placement. The diagram for 7.1 makes it appear the rears are "toed-in", but I'm not certain whether this is what is intended.

My side surrounds are about 1 foot behind my seating and at ear level when standing. I have them tilted down and toed into the main listening position and I think they sound great, helps to delocalize the sound. This is really a matter of perosnal preference so I would suggest trying them a couple different ways and see what you like best.
