"Toe-in" is the angle the speakers are rotated inward toward the listener. If the speakers are facing directly forward, there would be no toe-in (0 degrees) and if they were turned inward to face each other, there would be 90 degrees of toe-in (and a few questions about your motives...(grin). If the listener/speaker relationship is a triangle where the distance between the speakers and the listener is the same, it would take 30 degrees of speaker rotation (or "toe-in") to point the speakers directly at the listener. The same applies to "toe-out" and although I've never heard of anyone using these to describe other positions, I suppose it applies to "toe-down" and "toe-up"...you get idea!
