Thanks for the input so far, I've got my room dimensions below. width = 14 ft, 11 ft deep, 8.6 ft high. It's only a short distance to the couch which is 9ft from the front of the speaker, so the VP 100 should be fine. Should the QS8's be on the side of the listener or behind? also I'll have the M60's about 6-7 feet width apart in the front that would make it about 9-10 feet from the listiner.

From the Axiom FAQ:

Where should I place my surround speakers?
Ideally, surround speakers should be either wall-mounted or stand-mounted to either side of the couch or primary listening area, from one to six feet higher than seated listeners' ears, and slightly forward or rearwards of the listening area if you wish. Axiom's Quadpolar surrounds are especially versatile and can yield excellent performance with stand or wall-mounting to the rear as well as at side locations. (see our dedicated stands for the QS Surround speakers in the Store). Rear center speakers for 6.1 and 7.1 installations are intended to go on the rear wall at about the same height as the surround speakers.

Kevin, in a 5.1 setup the side surround speakers should be a little farther(maybe about 2')back than even with the listener, to lend a little back effect in the absence of 7.1 back speakers. Since you're going to be sitting almost up against the back wall, the best position is likely to be on the back wall about 6' up and separated about 10'. If, as you indicated, you might use a ceiling mount, position them similarly.

Since you have the 14' width available, it'd be a good idea to separate the front speakers a little more, about the same 9-10' that you'll be away from them.
