Try closer to the back wall for openers.

long time no speak, hope all is well with you and your system...I will attempt to attach a pix to this posting, if I am not able I can shoot you a photo...they are really beautiful speakers.
I am placing them near side walls and further apart and gonna see what that does, but Xiekitchens assesment is fairly accurate, but I am not done yet!
the reason why I bought them was I had heard them at an audio store in the 90s in their main room, they had them sounding to the point where I was asking them if the sound I was hearing was possible from these 2 little speakers.
i have a pair of the original Crown Joules. I am running them with some Threshold Gear that I have owned for a while now. They still sound excellent , bass is good but not excellent but they are not a large speaker. I have mine out from the wall by a couple of feet but I use the sealed 12 " Rythmik sub and it is a good combination. Imaging and depth are worth the price of admission. In a medium sized room I have no regrets.
I have Scientific Fidelity Teslas as back up speakers. They image like crazy but lack a little color. They sound a bit gray. Bass is not their strong suit but a very competent speaker. From what I heard Maloney got a terrible hatchet job by Stereophile and put him out of business. His drivers were quite advanced for the time.
