Thanks for the input.

I am afraid I was not clear in one aspect: I already have the electronics and speakers running in the mentioned configuration and was surprised that it worked so well with some test scenes from movies. (Denon x8500)

– I have configured and placed the monitors as front wides at the correct position for front wides

– I have placed the side surrounds slightly more behind the listening position but still according to the recommendations in the arendal manual.

– The receiver indeed automatically splits the signals to the speakers as described in my first post and sends surround signals to the front wides as well (Confirmed with a test sequence from a test blu ray)

– I like it better compared to using the monitors as rear surrounds and placing the surrounds at 100-110 degrees so far but I am still in the process of testing.
