Do floor standers have to stand on the floor?
OK - slightly dumb question, but the preferred location for my speakers will be on a lowish plinth unit that forms part of some built in units.
I'm thinking of Monitor Audio BX5's or possible KEF Q500's - and am having a demo next week.
Is there any reason why they shouldn't stand on the very solid base unit? Tweeters will still be around ear height etc.
Main reason for preferring floor standers is my perception that I'll get a more solid bass response than equivalent stand mounters.
Am I completely off my trolley - and if so what would you recommend as an equivalently priced set up?
Amp will probably be one of Rotel RA10, Marantz PM6005, or Arcam A19 - depending on the demo outcome.
