hey, for those of you that have subwoofers, I was just wondering where you put yours. Mine is on the floor right now, but I want to make sure it is in the best spot possible.

Floor is generally accepted as the best place. Because a sub is low level frequencies that affect your body more than your ears, it shakes the ground. At least thats my logic.

Mine is on the floor to the right of the video source.

I usually put my sub on my desk... On the ground? What's wrong with you people... It'll get dirt and germs on it and won't taste good anymore.

A corner is a good place.

I originally had the driver facing the wall, about a foot away, but it caused the bass to be so overpowering that I had to turn the driver to face the room.

Make sure, if you have a ported box, the port should be at least a foot, if not two feet from a wall.

Mine's under the desk which I know isn't the best place acoustically. It's where it's least conspicuous though so I'm willing to trade off.
