Room is about 15 feet by 17 feet. Seating is one end of room. Speakers just to the side and slightly behind the seating.

I would say if the 9’s are too close to the couch they are firing too low right into the back/sides of the seating which isn’t good.

The 18’s are taller and can overcome that but honestly 18’s as rears are a bit of a waste.

I have 18’s as fronts with my theatre and a pair of BL3’s mounted to the wall just slightly above ear level and it fills the sound space really well.
