    some people say to aim the tweeter at your ears and others say to have the mid-points (between the tweeter and woofer) aimed at your ears. Is there a definitive set up? Which is correct?

    It depends on the speaker design. A two-way speaker (or two-and-a-half-way) will have a lopsided lobe in the transition band. A D'Appolito design has a symmetric lobe. It gets more complicated with modern designs that use phase correctors and such. Check the manual or ask the manufacturer.
