I agree with Rob, not worth the time except only to experiment in order to say that you tried it yourself. I found no audible gain from this tactic.....

As I had explained to Nodes once you should have an unbroken plane between your mains, and yes, giving the M70's room to "breath" would be beneficial in S.Q. Give it a try and see what you hear.

I hooked my M70's up to one of my stereo amps and ran it full (300wpc), I felt the bass in the floor between the set up and my seat. I set my stereo amps to bridged and fed my A9's approx. 860wpc and ran them at full and had my theater seats acting like they had bass attachments in them and had all six 7" woofers slapping in and out of the cabinet (Tron Legacy blu).

Actually, I liked the Monitor line and believe it's a very good value, of course they can be made better with set up and additional power, but none the less, I've always liked them!

A properly crossed over system will have a smooth transition from upper bass from the subs to midrange for the main speakers, effectively giving you the thump you are looking for. It should be invisible to you and sound like all the sound it emanating from the air in front of you.
Nicely said Professor, I'm inviting you to bring your set up gear to my place and give me the hook up.......please
