Try spiking stands at both ends too. Taking all the play out of speaker + stand pays substantial dividends in focus and soundstage over a loose-footed speaker. The A2 is a stout cabinet - 3/4"...

Given that the mains are passive, my first instinct is the same as Bufurd's: It's in the source. The XBL2 midwoofers have roughly twice the linear excursion, so unless you're driving the daylights...

It's on the inside back panel, and the A2.4 weighs nearly 30# so bracketing it is more challenging. (The A1.4 is under 20#, but still heavier than average.) For the A2.4 a bracket that lifts the...

Those are excellent, especially the smaller, simpler one - if you don't mind using 3/4" drywall-style screws into the back of the cabinet, then consider those. Cost is good and with the right screws...
