My family room is fairly small 12'x 17' and where the couch is going their will be a window on the left side. I can either get stands and place the speakers on each side of the couch, or mount them high where the side walls meet the ceiling, this way the left surround is above the window. What do you guys think?

I have a thread going on here with the progress of the room, if you would like to view pictures. I need to figure this out soon so I can run the wires before the walls get sheetrocked :). Thanks for any suggestions!
