Default Bass of Proac 2.5 clone

Having just finished the Proac 2.5 clones, I find the speakers to have amazing imaging and wide open 3D sound stage.

However I also find the bass to be excessive (IMO). Is this expected? The speakers have only run in for about 24 hours so I don't know if this will improve over time. Am I experiencing bass that I should have heard before?

I also have DCxs from VAF Research and when comparing it to the Proacs, it even sounds slightly tamer in the bass region. (The DCxs reportedly can go down to approx 35Hz).

For people with proac clones, could you please shine some light on me. Even better, has anyoneone heard DCxs and 2.5s side by side as I would love to hear from you?

Thanks in advance.

A 2.5 way by definition has full (6dB) baffle step compensation.
Many designs do not.
Full BSC = placement away from corners and walls.
