Attention Dunlavy Speaker owners

I would be interested to hear from Dunlavy Speakers owners as to how you have positioned your speakers in your room for best performance. I personally am a big fan of Dunlavy Speakers but find them to be very placement sensitive. My question then addresses such things as distance from walls, toe-in, listening position, etc. I have used Dunlavys in three seperate systems and have formed some oppinions of my own, but will reserve those thoughts until I (hopefully) hear from some you on your own recommendations. Thanks (in advance) for your input!
Dunlavy recommended starting out close to the wall behind the speakers (6-8 inches) and gradually pulling the speakers out from the wall until reaching the desired sound. Toe the speakers in until you can only see a sliver of the inside of the cabinet. I compared my usual method of placing the speakers 48" into the room with very little toe-in to Dunlay's recommendation. Dunlavy's recommendation sounded better.
Most DAL and Duntech speakers have sufficient bass that they will not sound good close to the front wall. Experimenting by 2" intervals I ended up with the front baffle of my Princesses (older sibling to the SC-IV (A)) 48" into the room for smoothest bass response. Also, John's speakers should be at least 3' from the side walls. Because of their dispersion they can be placed further apart than many other speakers, depending on the room. I've hard them with 10-13' separation and that did not leave a "hole in the middle", rather it provided a very big sound stage.

But you cannot simply read what someone else has done and hope that will be best for your system. You MUST experiment with placement in your own room.
I had scIII's that were 10 inches off the front wall and 8 ft apart inside edge to inside edge driven by cary slam 100 monoblocks that sounded extremely good;maybe a little bass shy because of the 8 inch driver but a very nice and balanced sound from top to bottom.This speaker always made me wonder what the 4,5 and 6 models could sound and perfrom like.
Thanks guys for your input. I agree that it takes some experimentation to get best results. For me toeing in the speakers seems to always help. As with most speakers, not having an obstruction in the middle seems to make a positive difference, and perhaps a bigger difference with Dunlavy products than with other speakers with which I'm familiar. I have also found that adding spikes to the speakers tightened everything up without subtracking from low end performance. My three systems are made up of SC-Vs, Cantatas, SC-IIIs, SC-Is and a Dunlavy passive subwoofer. All things considered, I have appreciated the consistent voicing of all these speakers and have had fun experimenting with different arrangements. Overall, I feel that Dunlavy Speakers are still relevant in today's world of high-end audio and perhaps represents one of the all time best values on the used market if someone will take the time to get them set up properly. Thanks again for your thoughts.
