Martin,I wonder what it was making them sound so bright and irritating to you. Mine were close to the wall where you eventually put them.. And mine were a bit higher than usual speakers, though I compensated by sitting on pillows. hehe. They never sounded bright or overly lively in my space. I guess it comes down to the signal chain/ placement. Im way too lazy to do all that swapping though. Mike
Just remember... you're listening to speakers that were originally designed to be highly accurate (extremely low distortion - not just a flat frequency response) recording studio monitors.

Here's something to consider. The fletcher-munson (and later updated by other researchers) curves indicate that as SPL drops, the ear is more insensitive to bass. That means that a speaker voiced to have a flat frequency response will sound weaker in the bass region at lower levels. At higher levels, starting roughly around 85db or so, the hearing of the ear becomes more linear. Doesn't this then mean that speakers that have flat frequency response will unavoidably sound like they have weaker bass at low levels? Meanwhile, a speaker that is intended to be played at low levels may need to be designed with a big bass bump at the bottom. What are you then to do about a speaker designed as a true reference? I suppose you have no choice but to voice them flat and hope the end user knows what he is doing.
The question is how to bring more bass at lower volumes while still maintaining flat frequency response? Add a pair of subwoofers with DSP?
Only problem I find now is that I am not getting my work done, and just listening to music. Am I in trouble or what?
