Less toe in and closer together are both good. My fear is that I can’t get them far enough apart without having room boundary issues. My taped layout has 5’ between the panels and my seat about 6’ (so inside an equilateral triangle from the panel centers). I can move the panels out another ~18” and closer to my seat by ~12”, so not a lot of room to play with for U745s. Dropping down to 645s buy me another foot in width.
Where are your speakers positioned in your room—how much distance to the front wall and side walls? Does your TV cause any imaging issues from early reflections?
I’ll check out Averitt Express. I have an email into Roger as well.
