Hello,
My dedicated room is 13’X20′ with a 4 inch diameter steel structural beam (covered with wood strips)11′ from the short wall behind the speakers,
I am down to two positions.
Either the speaker woofers 3′ from the wall behind and 6′ apart with the listening chair just in front of the column and 7′ from the woofers, or the speakers 6′ from the rear wall and the listening chair 3′ behind the column so I’m looking at the column. Aesthetics aside, would you expect any adverse sonic effects from the column in front of the listening position?
Thanks in advance for any help.

A 4″ beam will not have an audible impact.
