I'm ready to purchase some rear speaker stands for some RTi A3's, but am unsure about how high I should go.
A 26" speaker stand keeps the rear tweeters at exactly ear level, but everywhere I've read says it should be at least 2 feet higher than ear level...

OK, so now for the question -
For rear surrounds that will be used for music & movies, how high should the rear tweeters be placed?
