Risers or stands can help smooth out room modes

One of the things I eventually accomplished in my multi-subwoofer system ?

Each of my four subwoofers is now placed at different heights (as well as different horizontal locations throughout in the room), ranging from ground level to five feet above the floor. In this way my multi-subwoofer system helps to smooth out both horizontal and vertical room modes. When they were all sitting on the floor, bass did not sound quite as smooth and even (over the wider and taller listening window that I'm enjoying right now).

I do realize that placement and "WAF" constraints might trouble many of us here, but the above idea is something to experiment with if you ever have the opportinity.
