It's useless to talk about placing the speaker until you determine the location of the midrange driver within the speaker enclosure.
The MIdrange Driver needs to be slightly above the listening ear level (if the speaker sits level).
Have someone measure the distance from the center of your ears to the floor when in your normal listening position.
Then try to position the speakers so that the center of the midrange driver is at that height or slightly higher.
If a speaker is angled up or down, of course, then the midrange driver should be "aimed" at the ear location.
With floorstanding speakers, using adjustable feet or spikes front and rear and adjusting the speaker "tilt" will aim the midrange speaker further up or down as needed.
