Woofer placement near floor-benefits?

I don't understand the reasoning behind say the YG Sonja and Magico S3 with floor level placement of their woofers. Intuitively inappropriate to me. I think Avalon Diamond is technically much more appropriate with woofer well off the ground. I would appreciate being enlightened. Thanjs

So Mapman I guess YG is onto something?
Sorry,I can't see your (their)reasoning Bob. Closer to the floor will simply make the floor bounce closer in time to the initial signal. Yes the bass is reinforced - but there is a time delay involved.I prefer to get the initial signal as clean as possible.
Thanks Onhwy61. Will look into later today.
