speakers on fireplace hearth???

Anyone have any experience with placing speakers on bricks in front of unused fireplace? The hearth is raised about 8 inches. Should I place anything under the speakers?...use the spikes? The back of the speakers will be about 10 inches from brick. Should I hang something between the speakers and the brick? Advice or websites that address this issue would be appreciated.

I just finished reconfiguring my room because of the hearth problem. For 8 years I've had one speaker up on the hearth and one on the floor. I got new speakers and decided to re-wire everything so that I could get the right speaker placement and I am so glad that I did. The issue I had was no flexibility in terms of placement. The bigger problem now is the WAF, which is quite low at the moment. Oh well.
