Subwoofer placement - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Agreed about putting the sub where the tower is. Also, is it a sealed design, or ported? If it is ported, I would point the port toward the wall, about 4-6" away.

Nice monitors, also! Are those Alesis, or behringer truths?

EDIT - I see they are M-audio's according to your sig. I think you may have to change your sigs name to SECOND loudest system in the world. I bet my Hafler TRM 6's and 400W MB Quart 10 are just a hair louder

That's the door to the closet, it opens about 45 degrees so you can squeeze in. Sound setup is the most important thing

It's ported. I'd have to turn it sideways to point the port at the wall, would that really work? I could also push it back all the way to the wall, so the front of it would be about 4 feet away from where I'm sitting, would that be too far?

Where is the port on the sub? Front, back, bottom, side?

As far as the woofer, I would place the port 4" away from the wall with the speaker pointed toward your feet. Try that.

As far as music, I do all sorts of stuff. I work at a studio, so I don't do as much from home. But if you are interested, I could email you a couple tracks I recorded/engineered from home. PM me your email addy if you want.

Alright so just push it back? Then the speaker will be able 4 feet from my feet. Not too far?

No that would actually deaden the sound.

Nice speakers.....expensive as hell though. I used to install MB Quarts in cars all the time . Love how 2 5" speakers cost $600+.

As for volume I bet I could beat ya . But as for sound quality probably not Not that my stuff distorts or anything like that, but you definitely get what you pay for.

The best way to place a sub is to sit where you will be listening from, and have someone move the sub around the room while you listen to see where it sounds best.
The second best way to find a good position is to place the sub where you will be sitting, and then crawl around the room to see where it sounds good, then put the sub there.
