Hope this helps
If no one has said so, welcome to AVS!
Thanks for the sketch, it does help a bit to understand your room and current setup. Not a bad first time effort!
Any possibility of re-positioning the speakers and/or Main Listening Position (MLP)? The reason being that with the MLP hard up against the wall, the bass frequencies will be at their peak so there will be a lot of inconsistency in terms of the lower octaves. I.e. there will be a lot of variability from seat to seat.
If the listening room's front to back distance is 10', might want to consider pulling forward the MLP by 1/3. Is this possible? If so, it will help improve the sound experience by doing a number of things. Including better angular separation between the MLP to the FL/FR speakers as well as the surrounds. You might be able to achieve the golden ratio of an equilateral triangle between the MLP to the FL/FR. What angular separation do you have now with the MLP 10' behind the FL/FR speakers? Is the center (C) speaker at 0 deg to the MLP? The other benefit of moving up the MLP is minimize the effects of room modes.
With the MLP also pulled forward, the Surround Left (SL) and Surround Right (SR) are now behind the listener. Ideally the the SL/SR should be 110 to 120 deg to the MLP. This is much better than the current position of having them at 90 deg to the MLP, as the intent is to have a ring of speakers surrounding the MLP rather than leaving a 'gap' behind you.
Also with the MLP pulled forward, you can place the front heights above the FL/FR speakers and check that the angular separation to the MLP is at least 30 deg. The same for the rear height speakers, check that it is at least 30 deg up from the MLP. Picture below will help visualize the front height and rear height angles.
What is the current ear height of the FL/FR tweeters? I.e. floor to tweeter height? If the intent is to place the front height speakers 2' above the FL/FR, how high with the Min22 be above the floor? With this, one can determine the angular separation of the front height to the MLP.
