I just put monitors on stands

And now no matter how i remix things it sounds hollow to the point of making my head and ears hurt like theres pressure. Also the stands have now sufficiently coupled things to the floor. :/ carpeted floor has major bass thumping, never did before.

I use to do things all low brow having my monitors on shelves that were anchored in to the wall. I thought i was gonna be slick with stands but its not working out.

Two other things i did at the same time i put in the stands: added an acoustic treble trap panel on the wall behind me, and moved the desk to the center of the room instead of over by the corner.

Whats going on here?

Position & orientation is almost everything. More information about your setup and room is needed.

The problem, is the stands themselves.

You are better off spending 40/50£/$ on concrete blocks that you build into column for each speaker.
Mass is your friend here.
If you can - glue a wood perimeter around the top blocks, fill with 2/3 inches of sand, and pop the speakers on that

Well.... I think that may be stretching it a bit.

OP,
You need to TREAT your room. Especially with deep trapping in the corners and on the back wall. THAT is where your issues lie.

The distance of the LF driver to the ceiling & floor will also affect how room resonances are driven.

When you move the source (speakers) or the listener (you), the room response will shift. It's a dance that you must master.

John

You want to face the short wall not the long wall in this room, from what I can tell.
