Speaker placement in strangely shaped "room"?

Hi, I'm planning on placing my speakers on 2.5-3 feet speaker stands in a "room" that's shown in the following diagram.


The dotted line means that the wall stops about 3.5 feet off the floor. Right now, I'm wavering between Option 1, which is to place one speaker in Corner A and the other in Junction B, or Option 2, which is to place one speaker in Junction B, and the other in Junction C. If I were to go with Option 2 (which would fit best with the space I have), one of the speakers would be placed near a wall, while the other would be in mid-air. Would that be detrimental to the sound produced?

Thank you so much. In case it's relevant, the speakers are Wharfedale evo2-8's.

No question about it. There is no formula for odd shaped rooms. Or much for any other rooms in my opinion. Research the Sumiko Master Set method. The speakers will "play the room". I've never found a better starting point. It was developed for hotel and meeting rooms for hi Fi conventions. Imagine how hard that is. If you spend the time and are careful you will be rewarded. Forget the tape measures, laser pointers, RS meters, hand clapping, and calculators.
