I just purchased the Klipsch 800 cinema 5.1 surround system for my Sony A80J 65 inch OLED TV. Should I place the satellite speakers on each side of the tv or on the other end of the room for the best sound?

I assume you mean this Klipsch package:

If so. The 2 satellite speakers should be placed at just above seated ear height on the opposite wall to the TV either side of your main seating position. The satellite speakers are classed as rear surrounds, so should be placed in the same position as surround sound speakers in a traditional 5.1 speaker layout:

Hope this helps
