    Default Rear surround positioning

    I've got a wall directly behind my listen area; So where should I have my rears pointed ? Im still breaking them in so I haven't watched any movies yet to really tell what sounds the best. If I knew how to attach a power point slide I'd be able to paint you guys a better picture of what my room looks like.

    1. Pointed toward the fronts at a angle ?
    2. Pointed toward the wall at an angle ?
    3. Pointed directly toward my ears ?

    Thanks

    Are the rear speakers being used in a 5.1 or 7.1 configuration?

    Do your specific speakers have a built-in mounting bracket or screw holes?

    I would place them on the sides of to the listening area if you are going to be using a 5.1 system. Either at ear level or higher.

    If you are using these speakers in a 7.1 system to add depth then they should be behind the listening area. Or slightly behind and above the listening area. Your pictures show that you don't have room to place these speakers on stands behind the listening area. I would recommend that you mount them on your wall and angle them so that they fire sound down at the listening area.
