Oh, I couldn't easily change source location because it's my (and my wife's and son's..) living room and I wouldn't use subs, just a cheap and easy diy way to improve sound performance of my little system.
What do you think about down-firing reflex vents respect classic front-firing solutions? Could it reinforce low bass output?

No, I mean the port is a source and moving it changes its entry point into the room. Unless you accidentally change the tuning frequency, then you are changing the room interaction.

Ok excuse me.. but from this point of view, since my "quite solved" 110 Hz problem came from woofer position and I won't change it so my problem will remain "quite solved", what will I expect for the lowest region of bass making this change to port position? My loudpseakers aren't diy and before to cut a hole in the bottom panel I would like to be a bit sure of the result.

Changing the port location won't help, unless the port is tuned at (or close to) 110Hz.

My recommendation would be a line-level EQ to cut down the peak.

No..we can consider 110 Hz problem as solved thanks to this thread. In effect I began a new thread in the thread asking if moving reflex port on the bottom of the cabinet near the floor from the front position (50 cm far from the floor) can reinforce very low bass response as I desire.
My loudspeakers are made to stay near a wall and instead are constrained to stay about in the center of the room, for this actually very low bass response is quite weak and I'm looking for a simple solution for this second problem. Thanks!

It could be then that they have no baffle step compensation. A simple solution may be line level equalisation as described here Baffle Step Compensation

I don't think, my loudspeakers is made by a great manufacturer and their own typology (2 1/2 way with 1 mid-woofer and 1 woofer working in the same cab) suggests that woofer is used just for baffle step compensation.
