I don't think that the orientation really mater. Sound waves are 
compression waves and not polarized.

Reverberation reducing tips :
1) If possible at all, avoid parallel surfaces.
2) Use sound diffusing geometry like those shown in this thread.
3) Use absorbing acoustic foam. On at least one wall. It don't need to 
cover it all.
4) Fully or partially cover a wall with some curtains.
5) Have a carpet.
6) Do not leave the room bare.
