That depends a lot on your seating area...
Tell us a little more about the specifics.
I have my surrounds positioned such that the drivers on the surround speakers are at roughly the same height as on the mains.

They will be a little behind the sitting area sitting about 3 and half feet off the ground i have the 800 I and CS400 center
Thanks for the help

My mains are at ear level and the surrounds are about 6 1/2 feet off the floor and on the wall facing each other.....and about 2 feet behind the listening position. The front main is also set at the same height as the mains. After alot of positioning that set up sounded best for me.

I found these plant stands at "unfinished furniture".
They work great. Much better than Sanus stuff.

if you sit on the right side of the couch you will get blasted .
I would move the speakers slightly behind the couch facing at each other.

i would suggest behind your seating area off to the sides. i have mine facing eachother with the main woofer/tweeter facing the walls. i was curious to know how the setup with the 300i's facing front to back vs. side to side sounded. i've never seen this done.

I love the Mission plant stand as a speaker stand. I'm looking in to that right now. Thanks for the idea!

I found these corner shelves at homedepot for about $7.50 each.
They have hidden mounting screws and are very sturdy. Also very spousal friendly

I questioned Polk on this one because the directions are very vague. They responded that the 300"s premium spot is 2-3 feet above the listening positon and approx. 2 feet behind the listener on the wall. I found that 2 feet above the listening position helps sonically when you have effects flying over your head. especially in THX DVD's. In the Mummy, swords are flying right over your head. I liked the sound musically better though at ear level. All in your prefrence and what you use it for most I guess.
