    im in the process of planning an upgrade to the bedroom.
    due to size limitations.

    would a sub still work ok when positioned on top of a warddrobe.
    its a solid wood warddrobe and not a flimsy chipboard attempt.

    anyone tried this kind of setup.

    all totally recommend against it.

    thanks

    I would recommend avoiding this method of placement.

    A sub is heavy, uses a lot of power and therefore the speaker is moving about a lot causing things to shake and vibrate if not VERY solid (see the thread on placing a concrete slab on top of a sub!). The wardrobe will just move about and all the contents rattle around.

    thanks for your response...

    i will take your comments seriously.
    how about placing the sub under a double bed.
    of course if i can find one that will fit.

    i notice u use a denon 3802.

    this is on my shopping list.
    are u pleased with it.
    i considering pairing it with keff eggs.

    If you can get one to fit under your bed then this should work well (with earthquakes etc. :D ) and will not have too many objects rattleing around.

    3802.
    IMHO this is a great receiver! I spent a long time on this forum and getting demo's from retailers and this unit came out top for me. I use it for 50% music & 50% DVD's and think the music sounds excellent for an AV amp in this price range.
