I've been told there should be a triangle with you and the two speakers being the corners. Height shouldn't matter as long as they are leaning downwards towards your head from where they are.

Position them facing your head in a triangle like Dubby said, obviously with your screen in the middle. Dont put them wherever they fit the room like you would hi-fi speakers, make space for them

You cant position them horizontally without affecting the stereo field. Those horizontal ones are designed to be placed like that.

The dispersion of the sound vertically is different to horizontal. So by putting the speakers horizontally when theyre designed for maximum dispersion horizontally, will create a much smaller sweet spot. Studios may do it for space reasons but also if they are placed much higher than ear level which they often are, then the dispersion will be wider when horizontal which is why in studios then may position them that way.

record white noise from ur speakers in a couple of different places, use a sectrum analyser on them and the one that has the best overall response is the place u wanna be sitting in.
