How big is your room? I own the SE's. The number I kept hearing from other owners was around the 300 hour mark for break in. Mine took somewhat longer than that (I'm guessing 450-500 hours) to really come into their own. My room at 13.5 x 17.5 x 8 is really as small as I would ever put them in. I have mine about 4.5 feet out from the wall behind them as measured to the front baffle. They are about 3 feet from the sidewalls to the center of the tweeter. I sit roughly 10 feet away from them. Toe in leaves most of the insides of the speaker visible. I am using Michael Green room tune pack for treatment. I know I could use more, including first reflection points and some bass trapping, but it is not too bad. The mid and upper bass is fairly even, but the lower bass is still a little high in level. The bass contour switch thins out the upper bass too much in my room, so I leave it out of the path. Legacy also has a user forum, and this question might get more reply there. Hope this helps.
