I'm thinking (but I ain't researching again) Rives Audio gives a general initial toe-in aiming point of five feet centered in back of the sweet-spot listening position. Seems like that's how I basically set mine up and didn't move them much from that position. It's been awhile though.

I betcha can read a thousand different ways of setting these speakers up from a thousand different and knowledgeable (expert?) sources and you'll find a thousand different answers.

Whenever it comes to main speaker placement, this stuff is so subjective and there has to be a million different room setups that I'd darn near throw out all of the thousand expert opinions and tune the system like I want to hear it, in MY environment. I typically use their advice as a starting point, nothing else ... most of the time. ;\)

I just noticed BG kind of double posted and Mojo already spilled the beans in the other thread.

Jason, I read that and thought Mojo made a left turn instead of a right turn at the intersection. ;\)

Carl, although good speakers should have wide and smooth horizontal dispersion so that the overall power response of the speakers in the room is as uniform as possible, the best sound is generally on axis. So, the general rule is to toe-in the speakers enough that the tweeters point at your ears.
