I'm hoping to get a new receiver and a 5.1 speaker package soon. I'm looking at my room layout, and am concerned about where to put the sub. I'm sure it's probably best to put it closer to the TV source, but there's no room there. As you'll see, I'm hoping to put the receiver between the chair and the TV. Although the picture doesn't depict this, there's really not much room between the TV and either wall in the alcove. (The alcove itself is about 3 foot 4 inches by about a foot and a half or something.) There would be room to put the sub where I've got it in the picture, but it would be about 11 feet away from the TV and right next to the listening position. Is this a problem? Thanks. PS - the room is only 12x13 at its longest measurements, so the piccie may not be to scale. We've experimented with the furnature, and the only things that can be moved are the two larger sofas, though we think they are optimally placed now. The only other thing I can think of is putting the receiver somewhere else and the sub in its place. But where to put the receiver, and how to connect it ot the DVD if its far away???
