rt70 should be facing which way?

Hi, I'm new to installing any in-ceiling speaker, and to be honest these were very easy to install, but I did run into an issue, which way should they be facing? Should the tiny tweeters be facing the listener? I know they can't be physically moved, but at least I can aim them on a general direction.

    Yes, ideally you want the tweeters aimed at the listener. That is why you can move them, so that at least the higher frequencies will be directed at the listener.

    Generally speaking, yes....face the tweeters towards your listening position. You may have to experiment a bit, depending on how you have them setup in relation to your listening position. If you can get the tweeters to aim about 2 ft past your head it may be better. In other words, you form a triangle with you, and the front left and right speakers, aim the tweeters so they cross about 2 ft past your head so your listening position is inside that triangle slightly. Experiment a bit....
