I agree with Stef in regards to your flexibility. You want to ensure that you are going below parallel, and getting into that deep squat position. I think that you should put your feet where they feel comfortable, and where you feel you can be the most explosive when catching the bounce at the bottom. I feel that you are most powerful when your feet are below your hips, and you can drive up fast and strong. My stance is exactly the same when I front squat and when I back squat. I was inrigued to learn this weekend at the crossfit seminar that power lifters use a much wider stance than Oly lifters (I am not exactly sure how to explain the "why", a powerlifter will have to pipe in for that one), so perhaps that stance may be one that works better for you...
