    I can only put my sub in a corner.

    From what I can tell, the Rel Q150, has the driver on one side and the controls on the opposite face.

    If I am to be able to get at the controls, it will mean pointing the driver into a wall...

    Is this OK?

    In the ideal world, how/where would you locate a Q150?

    It will probably sound better, tighter, some distance from the wall, so you can still reach the controls, I have my Strata 40 cms away.

    I wouldn´t put the woofer side against the wall...

    Unfortunately very few of us live in the perfect home cinema house and needs sometimes must.

    I have the original Q Bass which has in the past been placed in a corner and is currently next to a wall ( driver to the wall).

    There seems to be enough adjustments to play with to compensate for any placement shortcomings and mine certainly doesn't boom.

    Unfortuantly, I have no choice.. Its either in a corner, or not at all..

    I guess I could turn it round so that the controls are against the wall and the speaker is firing into open space...

    Once the controls are set, I guess that you don't need to make adjustements that often..

    Just be prepared to spend a lot of time getting those controls set just right. It takes a lot of time to get right, but is well worth it. Also according to Rel it should not cause any problems firing it at the wall.
