Hi,

I’m waiting for delivery of a pair of Fives and a Sub for our fairly large living room. The Fives will be on shelves on the rear wall of the room. 
 

Is it best to have the Fives vertically with the tweeters (controls) on the insides. Any advantage in having them toed in?

I suggest that you try both orientations. Some people are sensitive to the difference, some not. Only you know what sounds “best” (to you).

Try both as suggested.

I find facing straight can sound a bit odd if they are sitting right against the side walls, angling them in a bit seems to improve the stereo image for my ears in that case.
