Toe-In or Toe-Out

I always listen for a long time, with a bit of toe-out, just behind my head.  But I try again, for the second time, and for my room, I find the sound is much more coherent, with less saturation, in fact I can play a little bit louder without fatigue and saturation of music, like just in my face sound.  In fact it is more easy to listen to my music.  It is not a big move to make, just experimentation, it worth to try, for free.


Mine were freebies from work. They were a writing pen and a laser pointer combo. Worked great for me. The db meter, no need to get fancy. If your going to use a phone or something like that just use a stand so you're not part of the equation and use a painter tape reference on the floor with alignment marks for clocking the pickup mic the same direction the same time. I used a pair of Galaxy S3s that were both retired a long time ago. You could even pair them and WiFi the info back to a 3rd phone or laptop..

I'm frugal.. LOL Works sweet as can be.. Cost? 10 minutes of learning Doggle or VPN or Tethering or LOL what ever you want to use for FREE. You can just use one too. tape marks on the floor like I said..

Have fun...

Merry Christmas come to think of it..

Crossing just in front of your head or just behind your head is still toe-in not toe-out. I have never heard any loudspeaker in the toe-out position. 

oldhvymec, I check my right speaker, it was 11/2 inche to far from the right.  I check the front wall, 26 inches, it was OK for both.  I have tried, near listeng field, but I prefer far listening. in my 17x22 feet x 8 h.  My speakers are 61 inches centre to centre.  My ear, on my chair are 131 inches from centre of the speakers.  And it is now better.  How is important the positionning !  Thank you.  Not easy in getting old ...

Getting old, nah, wiser yes.. :-) Years is just something that comes along with it.. They are all free.. :-)

Glad to hear things are better..


noromance,  I just move them closer with just a little "hair" toe-in, (48 inches) and I find the music more coherent and lively.  I will keep them in that positioning.  Thank you.
