    Can anyone tell me if putting a sub-woofer for a Pioneer DCS 363 or 370 on its side to fit into my cabinet will cause any problems? Bearing in mind the DCS 363 is a down firing sub - not sure about the DCS 370 I don't think it is. If not then I can't fit in the cabinet and won't pass the wife test of hiding it - Thanks

    Hi Jossie,

    two issues I can see:
    1. speakers in cabinets will always sound 'coloured'. that is they will sound boomy, boxy or something like that. its generally to be avoided but if thats all you can do then you can do it, of course. subject to:
    2. not putting anything on top of it and giving it some space to generate sound. for example, you wouldn't want to put your DVD player on it as it will probably skip at all the parts of a movie with bass effects.
