Genelec 8030

I use a GenlecĀ 8030 rack-mountable for making electronic music at home.
My room has a volume of 41m3 and the conditions for placing monitors are very limited.
I have calculated 2 monitor positions that I have been shown to be the most beneficial, between home comfort and sonic honesty.
In the attachment, I indicated 2 locations:
1. Monitors are positioned wider for better stereo and more open sound, but the sound is washed out by being close to walls.
2. Monitors are located farther from the walls (1m), but at the same time they are located closer to the listener and name a narrower stereo picture.

Please tell me which option should I choose?
Maybe you can correct my setting and tell me how to switch the -db toggle switches.

I will also add that I do not have a subwoofer and it is very important for me to keep at least some low frequencies.

Thanks a lot!
