Vandersteen 1C set up

I'm about to set up a pair of Vandersteen 1C's. Unfortunately, I do not have the manual. Does anyone have any recomendations they would like to share regarding sidewall distances, and the correct degree of tilt using the stands?
I have been eyeing the 1C for my 14X14 room. What is the "minimum" useable distance from the back wall without totally loading up the room? I could get away with about 18" no more; Your advice is appreciated. BTW, I LOVE the sound of these and 2Ce...!!
you really need more than 18"...maybe you could pull them out for listening sessions and put them back when done...I have had the 1b's and my dad has the 2cesigs...just my 2c

p.s. Bigtee is pretty much on with his measurements so no need to repeat him...follow his advice and you'll be happy...if you feel that there is not enough bass when pulled out, big deal...there are lots of inexpensive subs that are pretty decent and you still get the incredible sound stage benefit of having the peakers pulled out.
You are, of course, advised to set up these speakers according to the manual. I have a pair of 1c's, but don't have the right room dimensions to make them work according to the manual. Nevertheless, While my setup isn't by the book, the sound is wonderful. I can only imagine if my room space allowed for a better position. Enjoy these - hard to imagine a better speaker for the money.
