I have used CARA2.2 Plus for many years to get good ideas of where to start with speaker placement.  It has worked well for me.

You can do a simple model or complex model of the room and speakers to have it do an optimization for placement. 

It allows stereo and multi-channel systems to be built.

   Thank you Hal. Probably by best bet besides my ears.

To be honest I was looking for a valid point for of placing or not placing monopole less than one mtr from front wall
If its say a large CD/Horn type speaker, then its probably ok. If it's a narrow baffle wide dispersion cone n domer, probably not.
Both are "monopoles".

or over 2 mtr
If its say a large CD/Horn type speaker, with large vertical spaced drivers brought closer to you,  then its probably not ok. If it's a narrow baffle cone n domer, probably fine.
Both are "monopoles".

Haven't even touched on room or tastes yet. :)
