Ben, were the 802D's on the optional spikes or on the rollers that come standard?

I ask because the 802D's come with rollers for feet, replacing them with the optional spikes makes a big difference in the bass.
The 802D's, as you'd expect, throw a much bigger image over the S805's, have greater bass, better clarity, separation...
I am a huge fan of my S805's, but the 802D's do everything better, again, as you'd expect.
I have heard the 803D's several times at my local stereo shop, if placement isn't proper the bass will over power as you said above. The last time I heard them they were moved from the time I was there prior and the bass was boomy; my friend that was with me spent a few minutes to dial them in and it was no longer an issue.
