hi all.

Just a quickie that may turn into a longie....

I am planning my new lounge set up. I have a Tosh 40WLT66 and a Denon AVR1507 with Tannoy EFX 5.1 set, along with a HD-E1 ( i know begginers set up)

anyway i have been playing with Google sketchup and done an idea i like but i am unsure of putting the sub within the shelf bench thingy....the picture will explain better

the sub is on the far right....would this make it too boomy being in there or would it be ok?

thanks in advance

soprry the picture was bigger before upload

Subs placed in corners tend to sound boomy, but this can help if the sub is underpowered and needs a little boost.

Looks nice though. Make sure you leave enough room for add ons and upgrades.

your right i best make the sub compartment big enough for future upgrades (wife permitting)

Hi Scott

It looks very simmilar to what I have. Don't worry about the sub sounding too boomy. I have mine exactly where you want yours and with a little tweaking, you'll get it perfect. Go for it.

No

The gear is all in the centre units (doors 3 &4). I decided not to put the backs on these units. Plus the units don't go flush against the wall, they sit out about 3 inches.
