Perpendicular to the longer wall and out a foot or more from the wall to the back you your speakers. That shouldn't be a horrible room to mix in with near fields.

Is it treated? I'd say "B", but what do I know? Only reason I say that is because position "B" is symetrical and should (in theory) give you a better stereo image. However, frequency response is a whole other thing. If it's not treated, then it really doesn't matter.

A is probably the Better position, B is basically rectangle, and has square symetrical walls, plus A position has the back wall furthest away. ie On all accounts A will produce the least ammount of resonating freq problem and easier to control the immediate listening area.

Those were pretty much my thoughts. All near fields require is being able to control a small area, and that should be possible in that room.

hgen friend, resonating problems because tortuous wall, understood !
I did think first we choose right place for monitors according room shape and then treat the walls ! ( teorically ) ! ?

I see bobwarren, in your back wall have a big absorver panel.( Good for the absorption of the first reflections ) covering probably entire wall...
I mixing in my "B" position i will have the benefit of an absortive entire wall for first reflections, but like said the other guys the bigger distance in "A"positioning could be good for avoid resonation sound feedback!Thanks, i will need test real thing after acoustic treatment the room, here i go hunt wood , screws and fibers!
well...

Set them both up and listen and do some frequency sweeps. Then decide.

You should think about flipping the room to face the back wall.
