I know that when Villchur and Kloss designed the early AR speakers, they were designed to be mounted horizontally and on a bookshelf, but that is not really possible in my apartment and thus i have my speakers on AR stands mounted vertically. My question though is about whether or not is recommended that they be toed in at all. I have 2a speakers that have been upgraded to 2ax speakers and I they are 8 feet apart and approximately 2 feet from the front wall. My seating position is about 8 to 9 feet from the speakers. I currently have them at a slight toe in where you can see the inside edge of the cabinets slightly. I have read that early AR speakers are not meant to be that far from the front wall and not designed to be toed in. I realize that this all subjective and placement is really whatever sounds best to your ears, but I wanted a good starting place in terms of what the designers intended and what is practical given my dimensions.
Thanks in advance
