Why do we include the 14-gauge powder-coated steel riser base in the Model Five floor standing speaker?

The challenge with any small enclosure is optimizing the positioning of the loudspeaker, regardless of whether the listener is sitting or standing. The slant riser base raises the loudspeaker to the perfect height, and the 5-degree slant-angle positions the floor standing speaker at the proper angle to ensure the best vertical coverage for all listening positions.
