    Evening,

    I have a wooden cabinet which is pushed against the corner “V” section of my living room, which leaves a gap of about 16” between the plasma and the wall. On the Cabinet I have my plasma on a stand. Can any one advice me if it is recommend to place my Subwoofer behind my Plasma as I am short of room.

    Many thanks

    Hi
    My svs-pc ultra is behind my plasma in the corner and it sounds fantastic it also has a footprint of 16" if you could find one in the classifieds it would fit the bill.If you cant it would probably be better to go for a down firing sub though.
    PS the above is just in case the sub you have now isnt suitable.

    Thank you for the info and photos Gonzo.

    I already have a subwoofer and as a new comer to the world of home cinema type things I have gone for a fairly basic JVC THS66 all in one unit. I have attached a few photos. I have done a birds eye view so you can see the space behind the plamsa (which I can move a good 6" forward) and a photo of the amp. Or am I just best sticking with where the subwoofer is now, just looks very untidy there and means I cant get equal spacing from the two front speakers (which may not be very important)


    Thanks

    Mark

    I would put the sub behind the plasma and see how it sounds you will have to adjust its output a few decibels though to compensate it being behind the unit.
