For the last 4 years or so, my Subermsives have been off to the side of the screen and acting as speaker stand as well. With the speakers that are coming, they will be standing from the floor on their own so the subs will be pushed towards the center, under the screen. Only problem is, the Submersive's don't exactly clear the bottom of the screen. Would there be any downsides to placing the subs on their sides for a little more sub to screen clearance? If there isn't, I can make a platform with 6 inch legs/feet with the center open so I can place them amp side down to keep it neat looking.

This will work just fine.  You just need enough room for the power connector.  3+" should be plenty.  The benefit is of course the dual opposed configuration has no fore/aft shaking to combat, so you never have to worry about the subs shaking or walking off the stands.

Food for additional thought: the F18 is 1.25" shorter, or a full 2" shorter if you remove the feet (23.5"). The F2 is also only 20" tall if set on its side.  Detailed dimensions for each can be found here.

Okay great, thanks. I'll make some sort of stand to prop them up then. I was looking at the F18's, that would be my ideal long term solution. For now, I'll make the stands/props for the Submersive's. If I spend any more money like that right now, I'll probably be killed in my sleep lol.

Do they make a 90' right angle plug for the speakon and XLR leads or a male/female right angle adapter?

There are no right angle connectors for the PowerCon connectors used on the original style amplifiers.  The current amplifiers, which anyone can upgrade to, use an IEC connector which we stock right angle cords for.  There are right angle SpeakOn connectors which we use as standard now for the cables we make in house.  These still do take up ~1.5" I believe, but you don't have to force the big cable into a tight bend.  You really don't need the right angle XLR if using the SpeakOn connection as a standard cable can usually bend within the depth of the right angle SpeakOn.

Long story short:  The new amps can be used with much less space from the wall than the originals that use PowerCon connectors.
