It’s not just you, a measurement will show that the time alignment is better. The passive first order XO requires that the 10F be setback about 3in. By flipping it, assuming your listening position is at the woofer axis, the offset provides approximately the right delay.

interesting, hopefully i ll get to do some measurements soon. for now i have the speakers upside down, the woofer is not high enough to be at listening position but it still sound much better, like everything is better balanced and bass is beautiful. i really like the SBAs and i m already thinking about a new set of cabinets since it looks weird upside down .

If you hadnít put the big BR vent beneath (now above) the woofer it would look funny. For some reason, vents do look good as the top.
