I started with the RM6750s speaker system in 5.1 (it was free with rewards points) still love it though... They were powered by a Pioneer VSX-921. My first upgrade 2 months later was a Pioneer VSX-1021, I then purchased a set of Monitor 50s to upgrade the fronts. Now I have 2 of the 6750 speakers that are not in use. I was thinking of adding them as the front height channel.
My rear surround speakers are mounted on the wall next to the listening position at ear level. So I have no surround back channel, and am still in 5.1. I have no way to move the sofa away from the wall so I can't technically get the surround back channel to be behind the listening position.
Would it be better to move the entire rear sound stage forward and put the surround back channel next to the listeners ears? Or leave it the way it is and hook the other channel to the height or wide channel?
