I'm visiting my parents for Christmas and since I'll be here for a month I brought my entire setup with me. The woofer is still about 6 inches behind the front of the desk but there's about 3.5 feet between its back and the wall. The room here is also a lot larger. I was wondering if there is an ideal placement and if the distance from the wall greatly affects the sound, because as it is now, it sounds really weak and no where near as good as it was at my own place.
It's a 10" M-Audio BX10s (http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/BX10s.html) and I use my system mainly for audio production, I do watch a little TV but that's not important. Here's 2 photos, the first is from my place (where it sounds good), the second is from my parents' place (where it doesn't sound good):
Anyone have any ideas?
