Possibly an illusion caused by low distortion and the peak, emphasising second and third harmonic of low bass notes (part of the instrument sound, not harmonic distortion). If the ear can detect the difference between the harmonics and the fundamentals of notes an octave higher, then the brain can add or "hear" the fundamentals, suggesting lower bass.How the TuneTot become having deeper bass response than M106?
Also, there are more reflections around when the TuneTot is used as described - note the slot "port" will output to or near the angle of the desk/shelf and the wall behind it. That may make the port act differently to the measurement shown here. The plug may be needed where the port doesn't operate as expected, or on a surface with space between it and the wall (like on a stand close to the wall).
Whatever they are doing, it appears to be a deliberate choice. It would be informative to compare its measurements to the previous small Wilson speaker, the Duette, which I remember as being a bit more conventional. I don't have time to look now though.
