Thanks Ericbee -
I temporarily placed them on the sides, in dipole configuration, last night. They are actually JUST in front of the seated position, about a foot. I can't imagine it would make that much of a difference from being even with the listening position.
Because of the way they had to be suspended for temporary use, they are angled about 30 degrees down towards the listening position. I am not sure if I will lose anything when mounted for good, as they would be flush with the wall at that point. The thought of building them out to keep the angle has crossed my mind. Since only the woof would be more direct (which is not an issue) I am not sure if this angled approach is a benefit or not.
Thanks for the help!!
