can anyone tell me the best position for a sub??? directly in front? on the ground? thanks
Mine sits in between the front left and right speakers, for aesthetics as well as being convenient.
I know its not the ideal position for my sub in my room, but to be honest Im a lazy sod and cant be bothered to experiment and move it.
Another principle people try is placing the sub in the listening position (the position where you yourself would normally sit) and then using a SPL meter and a test disc take measurements from different possible subwoofer positions and see which one gives the best response, then put the sub there, its easier on the back than humping a sub around the room.
Bottom line trial and error, unless youre me of course
No straight answer except........where it sounds best in your room. Too many variables with room acoustics, nature of furnishings and wallcoverings etc etc. Experiment.
thanks for the advice lads! i think the meter sounds like the best option.
