I have a 5.1 surround sound setup...
when placing front left and right speakers, do I place them according to MY left and right when facing the wall, or when my back is facing the wall?
Because when you go to read the back of the surround sound device it tells you what wire and corresponding speaker goes where, but if you're facing the same direction your system faces then wouldn't the right speaker be placed on its right side? also the same question for the back speakers

You're overthinking it. Think of it as from your listening position as to what is on your left and right...
