Yes, they are Klipsch speakers.

Looks like Klipsch to me. Side wall placement can be seen as an option, but 10 feet could be a predicament, especially with towers.
The only immediate suggestion is to pull the speakers further forward from the rear wall. With the side walls at about a foot, you can leave around 4 feet behind the speakers.
I see wood panelling on one side wall....add a few panels if possible on the blank wall also

Bass reflex design - pull the speakers away from the front wall - try 2-3 feet gap behind.

BTW, do you feel the need for a subwoofer with the floor-stander? Does it make a major difference? Is there somewhere else you could place it? Doesn’t look aesthetically balanced with the sub there.

Also explore adding a carpet at least in the portion in front of the speakers.

@SachinChavan i think sub plays a role mostly in movies in this setup. Even though position though looks more out of convenience
Absolutely right! I really don't have space where I can place the SUB. It is triggered only when I watch movies which is very less.

@Kannan I will try 1 feet from side wall and 2-4 feet from back wall and will report back the difference. Thanks for the suggestion!

I have observed that if we have a furniture in the middle, especially furniture which is covered from all sides and not airy like a rack, then sound quality suffers. Though this one is not completely covered from all sides, however it has many surface areas which block the sound wave movement.

Any literature to help understand the logic behind this ratio? Also how do you measure? From driver to front wall or speaker rear to front wall. From closest edge to side wall or speaker center to side wall?

Interestingly, I measured the depth (32 cm) and breadth (20 cm) of my speakers. It is exactly in that 8:5 ratio!

Not sure if literature is available, but in last few days when I was moving my music system to another room i observed this issue. It may not be same for all depending upon room size, furniture size etc. In my case i had a wide wooden furntiture and i had kept my bookshelf speakers on top of that. The entire 5 foot area was occupied by the wooden table and somehow the sound was not that good. After removing the table it was sounding natural.
