Question How should I mount my surround speakers?

Hi Everyone. I just ordered the VT-12/STF-2 package and I'm looking for some help on the best way to mount the rear satellites on my rear wall. I have an oddly shaped wall (pictures attached). It is 9.6 ft wide, with 10 ft. ceilings, but it has three segments (labeled A, B, & C) with different depths. I'm trying to decide if I should install shelves, or wall mounts. I'd like to point the left and right surrounds at each other, like the manual suggests, but that could be tough with the way my wall is laid out. I'd appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.

Thanks,
Jim

You can use 48" speaker stands for rear left and rear right. Make sure they are pointed at each other and are above your ear level. Full 48" is good enough. Rear center can be installed on ceiling of wall section B firing down at the listening area or it can be installed on wall B (slightly bent down towards the listening area) about 3 or 4 feet above the listening level. HTH.

You always run across something new on these forums. I was wondering why you choose to tilt the rear center speaker and not the other rear speakers. If it is a valid reason, count me in.

When rear left and right are mounted on speaker stands they are just above ear level so they should just be facing each other. Rear center is a different story. The best position is ofcourse on the celing firing down at the listening area (assuming the couch is directly below). The next best position is on the wall behind the couch slightly bent downwards. I guess it has to do with directing soundwaves better towards your ears . This setup is only when the couch is very close to the back wall.

I have 4 home theater seats about about 18 inches from the rear wall. Do you think I should tilt the rear center speaker? I will be getting a 7.1 receiver in a couple of weeks, how far apart do you suggest placing the rear center speakers (from each other) and how far should the rear centers be from the rear left & right? By the way my speakers are wall mounted in the back surround channels.
