but if you like it, who cares, right?
firstly, are you sure they are rear surrounds, and not side surrounds? Are you truly talking about 6th and 7th channels here?
There ARE bipolar speakers that can handle TWO channels. One channel per side (2 sets of drivers). They ain't cheap, but wanted you to be aware.
110-135 degrees for side surround mounting when using 5.1.
If 7.1, since rear area is covered, you are given more freedom in having sides at 90 degrees, and that is what I recommend.
My Rear surround speakers are spaced about 12'-15' apart , hung on ceilings.
I recently bought some splitting adapters and split both left and right rear surround into one additional channel to be used as a rear Center surround-similar to what a front center does. I essentially created a mono channel that contains both left and right signals.
Does anyone have any experience doing this, and have you noticed a more fuller sound as surround effects "swoop" from left to right,due to the center being consistently on??
