I am new to subs and am hoping someone with more knowledge can help me answer a placement question based on my room setup as I will be getting by Bic V1220 on Thursday.
I set up an area in my basement to be my modest man cave. It isn't a very wide area and measures about 115" from wall to wall. I have a projector setup and my screen is a 96" diag so it extends out about 103". This leaves just enough room for my front L & R speakers to sit on each side of the projector screen when pulled down.
As a result I can't put the sub outside of either front speaker, and since I have a short basement ceiling (old house, only 7' high), having the sub sit on the inside won't work as it would block the screen when pulled down, especially since I am going to prop it up a tiny bit off of the floor.
Knowing all of this, any advice on placement?
Should I set it up in front of one of the front speakers, close to the wall on either the left or right side facing the seating area?
Should I set it up against the wall in the middle of the area between screen and seating area,with it facing out towards the other wall?
Should I set it up next to my seating area as a sort of an end table? I have seen others on the forum describing that setup, not sure if that means having it face the front viewing area or face behind the seating area?
Hopefully this explanation makes sense, appreciate any help I could get. I have read some placement diagrams, but none of them relate to the space I have so not sure how to compare it to my setup.
