    I think your making it way to complicated. I always use the KISS method whenever possible ( Keep It Simple Stupid)

    I use cardboard templates that fit between the back of the speaker and the wall. A small pencil mark on the molding will be all you'll see. This way I can also run string between the templates to get the spacing and the tilt correct.

    To measure is to know..... write down on a piece of paper how far from the two closest walls the corner of the speaker starts. Write it down.... make a diagram if you forget what the numbers mean. Don''t lose the paper. You're welcome. heheh

    I use 3m painters tape.

    Unsightly to the incognizant but a beauty to the ones that know what it is.
