monitor placement, asymetrical room

I got a pair of Mackie MR8 MK3s for $155, and I'm wondering how to place them in the room, is it that bad to put them near the closet? (bottom right), also there's a sliding window in bottom left

What can i do about the asymetry of the top left of the room?

the main rectangle in the room is 15.09ft(4.60m) x 12.07ft(3.68m) height: 8.5ft(2.59m)
brick walls, carpeted floor
closet is made from wood all the way to the ceiling, with no doors

Lives for gear
That’s a difficult room. Honestly, no great solution jumps out at me. I hope you get better answers than mine. Good luck!

Best choice is probably to sit along the left wall but the treatment behind you will take space away from your bed (?).

The bed isn't as big as it appears on the image, facing the long walls, the speakers have to be with almost no space from the wall(like 8cm), so I'm not near the 50% mark of the room.

So I want to face the short walls, not so sure which one would be better
I removed the doors of the closet (due to some vibration noise of the loose wood grating), maybe I could put them again and add a heavy curtain to avoid the heavy vibrations of the doors.
