  • Getting That Speaker Toe-in Right

    This can really make or break a speaker and is an often neglected area of speaker placement.
    Read this article to understand the science behind speaker toe in and how it changes the frequency response at the listening position.

    Cool post, Myles. This should be useful to a lot of people.

    Ironically I have 2 speaker systems at home and one is designed to have 0 toe and fire straight forward while the other pair requires extreme toe in for it's wave guide profile.

      Great article! Thanks Myles.
      Proper speaker placement, acoustic treatments and dedicated AC lines are foundational to getting the most out of one's audio gear.

        You know that's the beauty of this hobby! You are always learning something new and unexpected! In the end, one of the main reasons I became a reviewer was to share my journey and help others avoid making my mistakes!

        Would it be a bad pun to say that connections are the missing link in our systems?

        And great to have you aboard!
