    Iv'e run out of room, got no where else to put it apart from a wooden shelf which is in an alcove, the wall is divides us and next door, and my missus is afraid it may cause to much noise for next door.
    So my other option is to put it in my AV cabinet on it's side, the cabinet has glass doors.

    What should I do?

    The shelf I would put it on would be the top shelf that you can see in the cabinet, it doesn't look right next to the TV, just put it there temporary. and yes I know my doors are scew wiff :D

    I think your talking about your sub? Puting it in the cabinet on its side probably isn't a good idea. it doesn't have to be next to the tv. Could it drop down behind the cabinet ? (although thats probably a mass of cables like mine) Or maybe get a longer lead and position it elsewhere in the room.

    Actullay there isn't many cables behind there, most are in the new cabinet I bought, only 4 plug leads and speaker wire.
    Would it be ok behind the TV, would it spoil the sound?

    Try it and see. Often with subwoofers, as the sound is supposed to be omnidirectional, placing it close to a solid wall can enhance bass frequencies and help to disguise the directionality. Beware of the dreaded boominess though.
