I'll probably be shrugged off for this, but I use measurements and common sense. As much distance from potential reflections is a good thing. Then take measurements watching for the most even bass response and fewest ripples from floor bounce, etc. Once you have the location locked in for that, I toe in by listening to the treble. Sometimes direct on axis is a good thing. Sometimes a cross fire is good. Sometimes straight out looks the best.

rock12,

It will also depend a bit on the size/type of your speakers.
