Moving the speakers further from the walls will generally reduce the volume of bass.
Yeah, they don't have that quite right. I call bass no higher than 80Hz, and to get a reduction there the front of the cab would have to be 3.5 feet from the wall; at 40Hz , 7 feet. They can be forgiven, as the average consumer thinks of 80-160Hz as bass.

By who's definition? FWIW bass was for decades considered 40 to 80Hz, approximating the first octave of the acoustic double bass and electric bass, 41 to 82Hz.. Midbass was the next octave, followed by the lower mids. When subs came along they were so named as they covered below 40Hz, as in sub (below) the bass.
