Angled subwoofers on the back?

Hi guys,

Need your quick advise,
I am thinking about putting two 18" subwoofers in the back of my dedicated HT room. The only place I can put them however is angled to each other in the corners, going behind acoustic panels with lots of OC703 in between.

I will have 4 subs in the front behind an AT screen on the baffle wall and would like to have 2 in the back.

Thanks for your thoughts and ideas.

Low frequency energy is non-directional. Putting them at an angle is fine.

I placed a pair of 18" IB drivers in each rear corner of my room. I also placed 4 more in the front. Doing so creates extremely smooth bass without much if any post processing. You can see tons pf pics of both the building process and final room in my sig.
