Learn about room acoustics, mods, nulls and better yet, buy a measurement mic and learn how to use RoomEQWizard software. You will see whether it is suitable in your room.

Wouldn’t that be overkill for a near field speaker.

You will have to eventually learn it not "for a nearfield speaker", but for your dear self.
Damn, owning a 909 and asking these questions. That was not like that in my times. Seriously, the question is not about the speakers per se, there is room+speakers+positioning+brain system as a whole. Learning acoustic measurement is a skill gained once and for a lifetime plus once the right spots are found, the brain will say thank you for the measurement/placement efforts, since it can and will memorize how the thing should sound, but cannot imagine.

specs of mi-gear are often somewhat euphemistic to say the least... - anyway, you cannot hear the lowest frequencies on these speakers; they are missing out on an entire octave - to hear down into lowest octave, you either need a very capable subwoofer or then a pair of decent headphones.

It says in the manual the speakers have to 1.5 meters away from the wall or you need to tinker withe the room control, so the speaker is 4 inches away from the corner of the room how much do I need too turn the room control down.?

It all has to do with the actual room and placement. Those manual's recomendations are too general.

It on mentions the back wall in the manual so that’s a good place to start, what would you suggest for adjusting the room control dial? Apparently the closer to the back wall the speaker is the louder the bass will sound.?

I have already told you if you are serious spend $50 on measurement mic and find the best spot in the room, might take a day with a friend, but pays 100x in the long run. I cannot help more, especially if the asking person ignores the advice.

Also I’m unable to move the speakers anywhere due to space

play sines from 20 Hz to 400 Hz and see how the SPL wildly varies.

In bigger spaces you have your listening bit louder how come but in an average home studio have it around 65 - 70 db measured at your listening point.
Occasionally bit louder but your ears get tired faster at louder than coversation level and then you´ll misimpertect your hearing ( was that English clear enough ? )

Keep a radio station playing through your speakers so you can get used to them more. I need to do this. Just listen to music as much as you can through your speakers. Hope it gets you used to low end.

Yes I’ll put it into practise, I usually get tired after 20-40 minutes anyway
