Question about B&W Nautilus 805's without stands

I have 802's up front in my HT. There is a sturdy wall shelving unit behind my seating area. I'm considering purchasing a couple 805's to place on the shelves for rear speakers. Would there be any problem with this? Would they need anchored some how?

Thanks for your help.
ive have the same spks 802's htm1 and 805's on cheap circuit city stands for rear or side channels i think they sound fine. your gona cross them over at about 80hz anyway

Hang on. The issue is whether or not the 805 sound good with rear boundary support. They are NOT voiced for that big upper-bass bump that will result. I tried several manufacturers' supposed "surround" speakers that seemed to be just reconfigured versions of their 2-way monitors (JM Labs, PSB, et al), and was surprised at how congested they became as I pushed them back against the wall. This 2pi/4pi correction stuff is a critical criterion in speaker design.
I settled on the Boston VR-MX surrounds because they simply sounded great up on the wall...even full range, and they look terrific too.
Crossing at 80Hz may not be high enough to eliminate the effects boundary reinforcement will provide for the 805. You may have to cross higher. Good luck.
