Speaker Placement

I have a 7.1 setup and I can't figure out where exactly to put my surround speakers. I will have 2 rows of seating. There's a window on the right that is in the middle and a door frame on the left.

Here's a diagram of the room:

The window blocks the optimum spot, so should I place the middle surround speakers directly behind the window at ear level or above the window near the ceiling?

I would place the side speakers directly to the sides of the first row (on the right side, it would mean mounting the speaker above the window).
Thanks a lot for the help. I'll do exactly that and tilt the speakers toward the seats.
Good point about tilting the speakers down. I forgot to mention that. But that's what I did with my surrounds as well, since all four are above ear level.
