Ben: Try moving it out just one time if you want to know what it is doing to the sound. Who knows, you may find that it sounds better with the TV behind the speakers. I have a bentwood settee with a lot of reed caning between my speakers and it does not seem to make a difference in the sound at all as I have tried it both in and out. Recently though my wife placed a group of six sculptures on the seat of the bench and this mucked up the midrange and vocals a bit. Thank god the cats kept knocking them off, so they are now back on top of the bookshelves at the other end of the room without me having to act like a nut:-) If you havn't already, try placing a piece of cloth over the TV screen and see if that makes a difference either good or bad. I do have a painting (on Masonite) above and behind my speakers that I do cover with cloth when listening as the flat reflective surface of the painting boosts the treble to a degree that I do not like. The rest of that wall is books floor to ceiling which seems to be a good sonic surface (the painting is hung over the books). Anyway try it once if you can handle the truth either way it goes.
