PLACEMENT / Toe-In
Due to viking Acoustics wide-dispersion characteristics Viking loudspeaker require almost no toe-in, so you can place them in the way they best fit your aesthetic. Viking's loudspeakers can be placed near the back wall as most port through the front of the loudspeaker!
Please make sure your amplifier has enough power! Playing a low-power amp at high sound levels can damage your loudspeakers! We recommend the use of high end cables such as Nordost, Kimber Kable, or our handmade loudspeaker cables. Make sure your loudspeakers are in-phase (red to red, and black to black).

As with an automobile, your new loudspeakers need to be carefully broken in, so the moving parts can smooth out, and the doped cloth and rubber surrounds can relax. The capacitors and inductors need burn-in time as well. We perform a factory pre-test of 2 hours at low volume levels before shipping your new speakers, however, more refined sound will be realized once you have broken in your speakers for over 40 hours. Likewise, the resonating internal damper (Instrument) and active baffle sounds will improve over a year’s time, as the molecular structure of the tone-wood sweetens.
NOTE: Make sure you do not "cold-start" your loudspeakers! For example, if your listening room is in an unheated basement below 45 degrees, allow the room and speakers to warm up to 65 degrees or higher. Playing dynamic music at high levels while your speakers are cold can damage them, especially when they are new and not fully broken in.
