    Shame you can't take 'em up a tad higher and tilt them forward a tad safely, and without too much hassle.
    Does lots for eliminating standing waves and the like.

    I was forced to move with Array's to much smaller room than before and now facing same problem, actually sound is still impressive - but would be more impressive if I could calm down bass a bit from those 14inches beasts (let's call this as fine tuning, 1.5-3dB). Is it possible somehow? By adding some resistor to lower end crossover section or some bi-amp tricks?

    Many would try an equalizer or tone controls. More effective but more difficult would be room correction. Why mess with the speaker's electronics when you know that's not the problem?

    I would experiment with room placement first… get the speakers away from room boundaries if possible. Also, is your listening position up against a wall? There will always be significant bass reinforcement if your speakers are in corners and/or your listening position is up against the far wall.

    If the room is so small that you have no options with placement, you might try stuffing the ports with foam plugs.

    You can try getting the speakers off the floor lifting them a little or more on a low base or stand (according to taste), this should reduce LF 2Pi loading and the amount of bass radiated due to diffraction loss.
