    I'm re-wiring my entire AV system in preparation of the arrival of my SVS PC Ultra next week.

    It occured to me I've not allowed for the extra length of cable needed to travel up to the 'line in' on the SVS.

    So, can anyone tell me how far from the floor the 'line in' socket is?
    I probably have enough cable to reach about 18" above the floor.

    It is about 19" but don't forget that you need to add an extra couple of inches to allow for the plug to be at right angles

    How do you know where you're going to put your sub so precisely? Before you've even heard it in your room? :)

    Thanks.

    Every subwoofer I've ever had has ended up in the same place after trial and error.
    I'm quite confident it will sound best where I plan it to go.... I could be wrong, but I hope not or I'll have to move the entire room around again.

    Naah, it'll be alright. :thumbsup:

    You don't need an Ultra! :rolleyes:

    You'd be better off with a shoe box and a rubber band! :devil:

    My apologies to everybody. :blush:

    I was following Ian's humerous lead about Jules wife deciding where the Ultra should be positioned. :)

    Those not allowed any subwoofer at all could fit a thick rubber band over half a shoe box. Then twang it whenever a bit of LFE was called for. :D

    I'm sorry if my humour was too "stretching". :devil:

    Nimby ;)
