I can't really visualize your situation, but generally you want the rears to be roughly symmetric from the perpendicular bisector between your mains. I wouldn't bring them in much more than shown below, but you could always push them out (and further back) as long as you maintain symmetry. The YPAO mostly compensates for imperfect rooms (e.g. right side is a wall, left side is a partial wall with opening to kitchen or dining). Gross asymmetries in placement I don't think it could compensate well. It was interesting to see how it compensated my rears (one is near a corner, the other is backed by nothing - open to dining room behind, but next to the other wall on the side)
