A little tilt back

When setting up a pair of speakers it’s standard practice to move them closer or farther apart, more or less toe in, and away from or towards the front wall.

Rarely do we remember to angle them forward or backward. This is because it is simply not part of the standard practice in speaker setup.

But, it’s a good one to add to your arsenal.

Tilting the speaker forward or the opposite aims the tweeter more or less directly at your ear without upsetting the delicate left/right balance.

You can try this handy technique without actually moving the speaker at all. Simply raise or lower your seating height by crouching down or rising up a smidge to hear what the differences are.

Try it. You might find a new dimension in sound you hadn’t had.
