I'm wondering what the ideal placement for the surround speakers are. I have a Sonos Beam, a Sub and two Play:1 on speaker stands. Right now they are placed just behind the sofa, but maybe I rather should place them by the windows (about 2 metres further back), se pictures. What do you think?

I listen more to music than i watch TV/movies.

This is the official Dolby recommendation:

I saw that guide. Ideal placement according to Dolby recommendation is not possible for me, so what would be the next best solution?
I don't think the window location would compromise much, just make sure to Trueplay them to get the distances and relative volumes set correctly.
