Why did you use cardboard?
To raise the tweeters up to my ear height. I made the stands three feet tall and they were still a bit too low, so I put cardboard underneath.

I'm curious as to why you have one monitor flipped sideways....I've known web designers/coders to do that, but what advantages in audio is there for that? Or do you just like it that way?
That's the way they were manufactured. You'll have to ask them, but I think the reason they did that was that so you get a better stereo image. The rule of thumb is to point the tweeters at your ears, so with this design, the mids and highs will go and meet at the ears in roughly the same place, while other designs will have the mids aimed at your nose or chest instead.\
I'm not sure, but that seems to be a logical reason. :P

I want to emphasize that in no way is RTA and corrective eq a "bandaid". It is a very legitmate approach that will get you 90% of the way thousands and thousands of dollars of physical treaments will. For a setup like you currently have I guarantee you'll end up wanting to combine in some RTA system.
You're right. I'll look into it more. Thanks for the tips!
