So question? Are you ever supposed to put 2-way studio monitors on their sides/position horizontal? I read somewhere you should only do that with 3 way monitors?

I had my KRK's on their side for awhile, and listening to vinyl with tweeters in(closest to center) the highs seem a bit much. I positioned them upright and it sounds quite different. My stands are a bit tall, so I am thinking I need some good adjustable ones.

Yes, you can lay on the side. Of course you can do it any way you want, but I'd recommend to put the tweeters towards the outside and main cone towards the inside, keeping that point between the cone and tweeter pointed at your listening position.

Whatever you do, make sure the tweeters are aligned with your ears' height.
