    An interesting notion. The closer you are to sea level, the denser the air. The speaker is actually moving more mass the closer to sea level you get. And if you lived on a mountain at 10,000 ft. The air would be very thin, and the speakers would be moving far less mass than the same speakers at sea level. But, it should affect all speakers equally? But perhaps, the closer to sea level the easier it is to make extended bass?

    It may all be minor compared to early reflections from the floor and walls, ceiling. Placing your speakers up high minimizes the early floor reflection, reducing boominess, tilting balance upward. Of course, this depends on which speaker you’re using, as to if this is good or bad. At some height you begin to have an early ceiling reflection, flip your speakers upside down and place them against the ceiling, and you wind up with the same reflection it would have on the floor. If you could leave the speakers on the floor, and stand on the ceiling, would it be exactly the same?

    Mine are 34.5" (88cm) wide and 30.5" (77.5cm) tall, and positioned as intended: on the floor.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Actually no...

    The Maggies are currently resting on 2" 'ish slabs and the new plinths are only 1" so they will then only be 5' 1"
