I've tried this with my 936s(they are taller than the 948) and it didnt work. It screwed up the sound in a very bad way. I do have them with a slight toe in. for the boomy bass if you can, try some bass traps.

Thanks for sharing, I am afraid tilting down will not work either. BTW the 948 are the same height as 936 (926 are shorter)

Not sure about bass traps. I tried a piece of foam behind and in the corner, and it sounded more muddled

I will keep experimenting. With the previous 726 I was able to tweak the bass, as I had connected to a subwoofer via High Level input, what allowed crossover setting, but with the 948 I have removed the subwoofer (now connected to the central to balance the more power fronts Inhave now, but that is a different story)

Focal - JM Lab Owner's Thread

Has anyone tried the 948 (or 936) without the plinth, directly on the floor? Does it reduce the bass or increase it?

I ask before trying myself, as it is not so easy for me to remove the plinths

Thanks!

check your port holes, i have read some have experienced the internal wadding/stuffing falling down/blocking holes somewhat. I havent experienced any of that. speakers may need to break in a bit, 40 hrs or so.

only other thing I might think of is a room peak resonance...would need something like rew and umik mic for that tho. or test cd and spl meter.
