When the speakers are angled in so much that this time-intensity sort of works, there will be less direct sound and more reflected sound in the center position, because the speakers send more energy to other places than directly at the listening position in center. More reflected sound and less direct sound equals loss of focus.Rereading your comment, why would you say "focus is also lost in center position"? What should cause this "loss of focus"?
But this is very easy to test for yourself. Toe-in your speakers around +30 degrees from pointing at center, that is 60 degrees from the front wall normal plane. Does this sound good? Is this a sound you can live with, in case you had a friend that might come over, some time? Or is it simply so, that this was a bad idea, because sound quality in center position is now compromised.
