Since it looks like you're purchasing dipoles regardless, you can try option 2 but I would go with option 1.
Whatever you decide but placement is off on both counts.....with dipoles, your ears need to be at the "null" area of the speaker so move them back alongside the couch. And make sure they are at least ear level if not higher.
The placement of the monopoles is too far apart, should be more centered behind the couch. Even then they should back farther so I dont think 15" is gonna cut it.
But hey, you never know. Try it and see.
