I was wondering if I'm going to have a problem with this setup in a new apartment. [5.1 Speakers]

The front wall is approx. 14 1/2 ft. long.
The back wall is approx. 17 1/2 ft. long.

The room with the tv looks like this:

The tv will be centered on the front wall with the front speaker roughly 9ft apart from each other. Because the back wall has sides, my wife wants the speakers in the corners. This would be the 1st time, I've not had the back speakers fairly equal with the front. I do have a receiver that allows you to change the distance to each speaker, so I was wondering if there is actually a problem or everything is fine.

Any comments?

I still can't believe I looked up some geometry formulas to get the distance between the front speakers to get the 45-60 degree listening angle.

For Yamaha DSP modes I find the best position to be in the back with direct radiating speakers. I have tried the Dolby labs recommendation but didnt like the sound with DSP modes engaged.
