I had a pair of Type IVs for years..even hung them from the ceiling at one point. They were fun but a pain to move.
Back in long ago Internet days there was an audiophile who made a pretty good case for Bose...or Bose-like -- setups. He had a bunch of them arrayed around a room. Also reportedly his Bose-style speakers outperformed other speakers in a well-designed shoot out. I forget his name now...though I think his last name started with Em..something?
I don't get why you toed yours in though....it's not what Bose recommends....
Btw I knew a guy who preferred to listen to his turned around (i.e., the array and rocket ports facing forward). It takes all kinds.
I listened to them in various configurations. Toed in. Out. Against the walls. Not against the walls. In my HT. In my living room. My living room is a wall of built in bookshelves and I don’t want people seeing my family photos (that’s too creepy for me) and I wasn’t about to take everything down just to take a photo.
Didn’t seem to matter in the grand scheme. Just changed the soundstage a bit but mostly the result was always crappy tonality, high distortion and crazy big soundstage.
But with Dirac Live... that was better.
