Really? These actually have risers under them so they're about an inch or so off the ground. Getting good, but not boomy bass. How far off the ground are you recommending?
Try it and see.
Some say stands that a a foot off the floor work great. Some say stands that have a front face even with the front of the speaker work best.
Only know by trying. I used to have JBL 166 Horizons sitting flush on the floor for nearly a decade and someone suggested stands that raised them a foot off the floor and...
I realized that a decade of listening had been wasted. :-(
I've been using an old pair of Wharfedale W70 cabs as stands for both AR 3's and KLH Model Six's prior to getting the CW's. Those are about 3 feet up, so too high for the CW's. I do have a couple of old junk speakers around that I might be able to use as stands. But again the CW's are presently not on the floor but on 1 inch risers, and they sound very good.
