If you are using amplitude panning and any two speakers are more than 60
degrees apart in angle (or so) it becomes increasingly difficult to
create convincing virtual images between the speakers. The virtual image
tends to jump from one speaker to the other instead of smoothly panning
between them (this is an extreme simplification, of course).
