You're getting some 1st reflections off those side tables for the front left and right speakers sitting on the hard surface. Might want to consider 'lifting' the SM450 off these tables with a short stand or insulation mounts/pads.

An alternative is the monopads from Auralex: http://www.amazon.com/Auralex-Monito...=auralex+mopad
