Default surround placement

In anyones experience.....is it really critical to keep them at the same height?
I'm running a 7.1 and the left surround back is going to be about 5 inches lower than the rest of the surrounds. Will the height difference affect the sound at all or is it more of a looks thing (which doesn't bother me). They're larger bipolar speakers if that matters (Mirage MBS). Thanks!

As surround are a bass speaker, and as bass notes are spherical, it appears to me that isn't really important the placement of such device.

IIRC, the THX recommendation is to keep all of the speakers within a +/- 1ft horizontal plane.

Surround speakers are not "bass speakers."
