REL suggests to place the subwoofer in the corner behind the main speakers, and facing 45 degrees away from the corner. This suggests that the speakers may be somewhere in the path between the subwoofer and listener. Other people hide their subs behind the TV. I wondered, having furniture in the way of the sub, will that reduce some of the sub's effect? I currently have the sub at the front corner of the room. There is a table in front of the sub. At the moment, I have my sub facing parallel to the front wall, so any sound waves avoid getting blocked by the table. If I place the sub at 45 dregrees as REL suggests, one of the table's legs gets in the way. At first glance I haven't noticed any difference, but there could be something I'm missing that I don't realise. Can anyone tell me if it's OK to place furniture in front of the sub, or does it reduce the quality of output? Thanks.
