Doogals, the 150 degree position is for the rear surrounds in a 7.1 setup. But with a 5.1 setup, the side surrounds should still be 90 to 110 degrees.

So your HTS-2 picture is correct except that "side surround" is the for the speakers at the 110 degree mark while the speakers at 150 degrees should be labelled "rear surrounds" or "back surrounds".

I haven't a clue what the side surrounds would sound like if they were placed at the 150 degree mark in a 5.1 setup. You may like it, you may not. Give it a try. When putting a home theatre setup in a living room, we always have to make compromises. You may find that it sounds just fine for you. :)
