    i just got my new diy amazing speakers. they played awesome but they werent correctly set. i followed this advice from a post i found in

    To adjust toe in I use The Beatles-"Abbey Road" and the song "Her Majesty." The vocal and guitar start

    off in one channel and slowly pan all the way to the other channel. If the vocal move towards the

    listener as it gets close to the middle there is too much toe in, if the vocal moves away from the

    listener there is too little toe in. It should sound as if McCartney's vocals roll smoothly and

    continuously across the sound stage. If it sounds like he jumps from Right to Center to Left the speakers

    are too far apart.

    after i did that, followed our hosts advice.
    in total, i can only say WOOOOOOOOOW
    My speakers were not in a strict triangle with same sides, so i needed to play a little. But now i am just shocked in what i hear. i put revelations from iron maiden and its like i never heard it before. Thank you Mr Steve Hoffman, thank you guys. i am in heaven

    I don't know of it's my copy or what but the whole song starting with the vocals tend to crescendo all the way through. I even switched speakers and it does the same thing going the other way.
