My desk is solid oak so bass and mids resonate through it beautifully. Especially since the speakers sit directly on it and they are heavy (3.5 kg).

Here is how I have overcome this.

The pillow does two jobs - it deadens vibrations in the monitor and, because the monitors and speakers are arranged like a box against the wall, it helps to dampen resonances / amplification there too:

Ideally you'd place the speakers facing rather than along the long side of the room. Either way the speakers should be atleast 10" from the front wall.
