Default MartinLogan Motion SLM-XL?

Anyone have any experience with these? I currently have SVS Ultra bookshelf speakers for my front surrounds. After adding another PB-13 Ultra sub to the front my speakers are pushed to about 8" from the side walls..with curtains hanging about 3" from the front left speaker. Not sure if this is really bad or not but it looks crowded to me.
I was thinking that mounting the Martin Logans to the wall on either side of my display would solve that.
I've listened to them and although they sound okay (maybe a little "thin" sounding), I've read that they need 100 hours or so of break in for the woofers to loosen up.
Taking into account the layout of my living room, the width of my component cabinet and of course WAF, I can only put the subs up front flanking the cabinet with the speakers on the right and left of the subs. If I switch that around and put the subs in the corners my speakers are too close to the display.
So...either I
A: Leave my speakers close to the wall
B: Mount the ML's on the wall next to the display.
C: Put the SVS fronts on shelves next to the display, eliminating the speaker stands.
or D: Buy a new cabinet that's not as wide as the existing 65" cabinet.
My room is only 12' wide so there's not a ton of options.
Oh...and I'll be keeping my SVS center channel no matter the layout.

Just an FYI...they sound like complete crap for music so I returned them.
