Uneven room dimensions/reflections = uneven toe in as solution?

It’s challenging in my room to create a sound stage that is distributed equally between the speakers. That is, to have the center in the center means that there is a slight preponderance of sound on one side versus the other. This is due to the rooms  asymmetrical  dimensions and asymmetrical ceiling, and partially glass and partially furniture in front of the speakers. All of this needs to be as it is for reasons not related to audio. I’ve tried various solutions and I am now experimenting with toeing in one of the speakers, the one on the weaker side, to try to accentuate it’s half of the stereo sound. Has anyone else tried this?  Or does anyone have any other solutions for me? I don’t have a balance control on any of my equipment or it might be much easier to fix this. It’s not a terrible problem and I am mostly mentioning this because I have a little free time and I’m curious. Thank you ahead of time. 


Somewhat similar situation with a a fairly narrow, asymmetrical room.  For me it took finding the right speakers that worked the best within my limitations.  Martin Logan ESL's were the answer.  Because of their narrow horizontal dispersion and line array type design, they eliminated most of the reflection issues I was having and took a lot of the room out of the equation.

I realize switching speakers is not an easy, simple solution, so my suggestion is to play around with placement and add some room treatments, if possible.  Balance issues can often be mitigated by a combination of absorption and diffusion.

@m669326 Got exactly the same problem here, and trying the same solutions. Asymmetrical toe-in helps, and is not a deal-breaker to my eyes. Agree that adding EQ/balance control and room treatment can get you near what you might hear in an optimal listening environment.

Another option, set toe-in to cross just in front of the listening position.  This will negate early sidewall reflections.  Also, sitting closer to the speakers results in less room sound.

You might also consider speakers that have a narrower or more focused sound stage.
