    Hi there,
    For surround backs it is recommended they be placed at the same height as the surrounds.
    Also, a slight downward angle might help imaging.

    As far as distance apart, the best place would be slightly in from the distance between your front mains. Another words, you want them closer together than the fronts mains are apart. Just a little.
    I've found that 6" to a foot closer together than the mains is a good overall placement.
    It's sort of like creating a capitol W with your mains, center, and surround back.
    I hope that is helpful.
    Enjoy your system.
    You should of heard just what i've seen.
