Have you tried to play with the toe in? Does it make any difference? Being 14' back I suspect that toe in will do little to add or detract from anything. The equilateral triangle does make for a much improved imaging/soundstage.

I have them toed in so the tweeters would hit a point a couple of feet behind my head, that seems to work the best although I think your right because the imaging/soundstage is good no matter how I set them. I like how the highs sound with them toed in though.

For most recordings I'm finding that I don't use a sub at all, for a few I have my subs crossed over very low (around 50-55) and the bass still going to both the mains and the sub with the subs filling in a bit. I'm shocked that you don't really need a sub with music that is recorded well...

I think I may have wasted my money on the svs sub after all. Don't get me wrong, it's great for movies and about 3 times a month or so it gets a workout with a new movie off of Netflix. Other than that I'm all about music so it is rarely getting used now.
