    Position of Subwoofers on Baffle Wall - Advise Needed.

    I'm about to build my baffle wall. And to be honest, I don't know the best position for these subs. As you guys know more about subwoofers than I do.

I have no other components for the system yet and have no chance to audition them myself as I'm on...

    OK to position a soundbase to the side of the TV (instead of underneath)...?

    Would it be OK to position a soundbase on shelving to the side of a wall mounted TV? I am concerned that if it's not close & central to the TV the sound experience will be strange. If it makes a difference the soundbase is a Cambridge Audio TV2.

    Where should I position speakers in this room?

    Hello people, I want to do a 'proper' (if modest) home cinema set up. My room has slightly unusual proportions and SWMBO has some funny ideas about putting the sofa (main listening position) inside a nook in the rear wall... She also insists on small (not cube-like) speakers so I'm basically...
