When I set-up my M60s, I put a level on them and they looked real close. But looking at them now for several weeks, they just seemed to be leaning forward a little. Just for giggles I tried putting quarters under the front legs to angle them up, very slightly. I am astounded at the improvement of the highs. I felt my jaw drop, literally, several times while listening to my "new" speakers. What I thought were good speakers I now believe to be fantastic speakers! (Hmmm, you don't think I'm imagining it after investing all that money, do you? ;o) Seriously, try it. You might like it.

I keep several quarters handy in my CD cabinet just for leveling our M80s on the carpet, for whatever reason (weight & balance, I presume) our M80s always lean out from center so I use quarters under the outboard legs to level the speakers vertically. I never thought about raising the front of the speakers past level for sound.

If you have any washers hanging around use them and pocket the $$$. If you don't have any, keep using the quarters, as I suspect purchasing them would cost more than the value of the coin.

You know what would be great? Some outriggers with adjustable legs. Maybe Mark could build some.

Enough with the Tom-Foolery.

But seriously. I recently solved a similar problem in putting together the tripod, mast brace on the new Hobie Cat. The front bar has a directional brace at the top that refused to thread in, in any other way other than to end up with the brace at 180 degrees the wrong way. Instructions said to tighten or loosen it to get the correct angle but it would not tighten that much and loosening left a tiny gap of a ml or more. They say the gap is OK as all the pressure on the bolt is mostly up & down but I'm kind of crazy in that I like load bearing parts to fit flush.

I could not find a stainless steel washer just the right size to get it flush so I tweaked a nylon washer to fit on a belt sander. Cost of nylon washer... free, because the clerk was not interested in ringing in a 6 cent item.
