This sounds like a great setup! I would go with the center channel because it is curved and will have a greater point source radiation into the room. The flat sideways concept would create just the exact oposite situation in that the center image would become fuzzy because of the same sound comming from the far left and far right side of the speaker. It would also not spread into the room as well as the center channel would. On the side speakers, I would very slightly tilt them so the backwards sound wave runs into the wall. I am only talking a 5-10 degree tilt here just so the signal gets sent into the room instead of traveling the entire length of the side wall and never getting into the room- these speakers do beem forever. And if possable try placing the back speakers at exact 45 degree angles in the corners so that both sides of the soundwave hit the back wall and side wall at the same time. From the center of the room you would only see the one inch depth of the speaker as the sides would be angled directly at you. You wont believe how efective this is if your room permits. Well done on the choice of speakers!
