The owner's manual and design of the cabinet would seem to indicate that the long side of the cabinet (ie the back, with the keyhole mount and input terminal) goes flat against the wall. This makes sense. If your black lines above represent the aimed direction of the woofers and tweeters, I would say the proper mounting is none of the above. Klipsch-s mounting would put the woofer and tweeter axis' 45 degrees off from a line directly at your ears. Or put another way, the point on the front of the cabinet will be aimed at your head. Does that make sense?
Since it is a dipole speaker, none of your pictures work.
Dipole speakers only work when they are placed away from the front and rear walls. You place them centered with your ears on the side walls so that your ears are in the null spot between the dipole arrangement. This speaker does not work for couch-against-the wall arrangements as you cannot take advantage of what the dipole is trying to do.
If you are forced to stay with your current setup, sell the speakers and buy monopole (normal) bookshelf speakers and aim them towards your ears and above your head. The should be 90 degrees to about 120 degrees with respect to the couch.
