Marble slab under speaker

Anyone can explain why my Harbeth HL 5 +speaker turns alive after I put two heavy duty marble slab under it supported by cheap footers? What's the scientific explanation?

Vibration
Trying very hard to reproduce the music and sound that creative mixing-artists composed in the studios, at home with limited knowledge and resources.

If you are on stands, put the stands above it, another characteristic. I personally don’t like the sound character with marble/granite but it’s personal.

Bottom line is that any physical/vibration-related changes you make to your system, especially speakers, will have a sonic impact. Marble-slab on top of your HL5+ will probably have an even bigger sonic impact (good or bad, depending on your point of view) ;D
