Also wondering what Revel recommends.
If you have spikes then are you on a carpet or hard floor? If you are on a hard floor get brass spike discs from www.audioadvisor.com
or accessories4less.com and put felt sliders on the bottom of the discs. It makes them easier to move and then when you have the location nailed you can remove or keep the discs in place with gaffer's tape which doesn't leave residue.
Regarding toe in, it's in the user manual. Toe in is recommended bit it's a pure matter of preference. My Ultimas are almost straight with very, very little toe in.
If your setup is not 2-channel and primarily home theater then I suggest a more aggressive toe in so that you conform to the specs for your setup. In that case the speakers are points on a circle. An easy and effective technique is to then take string from the primary listening position and measure distance and toe in with the string. That way you are consistent. You can then see what the results are like and tweak accordingly.
Remember that your home environment cannot be guaranteed to follow and hard and fast rule. Walls vary slightly and aren't completely straight or parallel, etc. all those environmental variables and more make placement both an art and science.
