Check out Jim Smith's 'Get Better Sound' DVD. Jim is the master of Magnepan set up, in fact he invented it and wrote the set up manuls. Perhaps if you email him (firstname.lastname@example.org), he will directly help you.

I had MG-1s for 20+ years and a rebuild at WhiteBear Lake. While I never got the mod-bug, they were an absolute revelation for me. Even with my original Kenwood integrated! Later, when I upgraded to a than new Carver Cube I had my eyes opened yet further.
You've given me an idea for some wall treatments which may pass the WAF test.
dont own any but I was actually talking with a dealer not long back who has a pretty extensively treated room and he was commenting that their experiments found that the 1.7 needed to be tilted back quite a bit further than the stock mounts allowed to sound "Good" no reason to doubt this or suspect room treatments were somehow flawed but you may want to also look outside the normal range of adjustments as well. sorry for the semi off topic.
