right up against the wall, however, the sound will be comprimised. I would say at least 6" to allow the low bass to filter from the rear ports.

I have my M80s about 3" out from the wall and have not noticed much difference with them at 3" or if I move them out to 12".

Hi Brandon,

The closer to the wall behind and any side walls, the greater the boost of low bass--even to the point of it becoming "boomy" (in a corner, especially). The farther out from adjacent surfaces, the less emphasis of deep bass. It will vary quite a bit with different rooms.

Regards,

Alan

As another example, mine are < 6" from the wall and work great in my room. I've experimented a bit with moving them in and out and haven't noticed a great difference.

Like Alan said though, your room may be a bit different, but as you can see from the examples here, you'll probably be fine anywhere in this approximate range.

I should add that mine are corner loaded, so I have always guessed this is why I get very little differentiation between 12" out from the wall or with them 3" away from the wall.
