Have you experimented with moving the stands/speakers? Stands from the walls/speaker toe-in?

I had the same problem. My stands now have the little clear dots that are used for cabinet doors to keep them from the wood door coming in contact with the wood face of the cabinet(three on each corner). It didn't matter where I moved the stands either. It's something the cabinet is doing and has nothing to do with placement.
If you have the time and patience,try changing the amount of sand filled in the stands..I have found ( using Skylan Speaker stands ) that the amount of fill required for best sonics in fillable stands has a lot to do with Speaker cabinet construction..Thin wall speaker cabinets react much differently than thick wall speaker cabinets..Sonics can change considerably ( good and bad ) from the amount of fill in Stands.....I ended up filling only 1/3 of stands.....
I put some Vibrapods under my Silverline Preludes not really expecting anything (I mean really...I've been spiking speakers into floors for decades...wasn't I supposed to?) and I'm amazed at how well that works. Highly recommended as a really cheap tweek...I guess it has something to do with keeping energy out of the floor where my sub lives (the sub remains podless).
Kiza : Glad things worked out..Funny how things can change with more or less sand.....The transition between Stand and Speakers is also a crapshoot..Herbies' stuff is great..Many like Bluetak.......Just keep trying different things an eventually you will find the right cure..Every situation is a little different..
Now remove all the sand and replace with reactive agents such as brass powder or steel bearings. Vibration will be attracted and drawn to these materials.Fill 25 to 30%.. The speaker needs to be terminated to the stand and the stand needs to be terminated/coupled to the floor to make this one continuous pass thru of resonant energy. Soft materials de-couple and store and slow energy, you want to provide as fast an exit strategy as possible. Material choice and its geometry are crucial to this outcome. Tom
