Default Horizontal use of B&G RD75

Please provide your careful opinions/speculation of the following horizontal uses of the RD75. Obviously, midbass and bass sections will be added on later.

I am trying to see if the below configurations of the RD 75 goes towards increasing the consistency of sound field throughout the room (rather having one optimized sweet spot).

1. left and right channels at ear level. meeting in the center of room. in a straight line.

2. left and right channels at ear level. meeting in the center of room. shooting at slight angle outwards

thanks,

I think by placing them horizontally they will become very directional at the higher frequency range.

A very narrow horizontal dispersion as a function of its length.

You may need to toe them in instead of out.

FWIW

toe-ing them in would only reduce the sweet spot since they are directional.
no?
