1. Try and position your speakers in the centre of whichever wall they are placed against. This means that the sound will be reflected equally from the left and right walls of your room, which will help achieve better stereo imaging.
2. The speakers should be positioned at 2 points of an equidistant triangle, with the mix position being the third corner of the triangle. This places each speaker at an angle of 30° from the centre, which is generally accepted as the correct width for stereo listening. See diagram below.
