Toe In

Acoustics
The degree to which the inside front edges of a pair of speakers are angled toward each other.

Automotive
Ideally the front wheels would be held in a striaght-ahead position under all driving conditions by the suspension and steering linkages. However, on rear wheel drive vehicles the drag of the front wheels will result in them toeing out. Therefore, initially setting the front wheels to toe in will mean that when driven the wheels will tend to be aligned, although not under all driving conditions.
