Hope you are well.
I will be goofing with placement etc. after Mic gets here. I was thinking bringing the sub near field to reduce the volume which should reduce the unwanted house destruction...lol.
The sound of the sub is very, very nice, not boomy and so stealthy with the bass impact. I mean everything sounds so clean and real with no overhang, then when the action is gone...poof disappears again.
From front to back the room is 25ft. My seating distance is 10ft, so at my listening location it is fantastic...go to the back wall and the standing waves are immense. I did not notice the rear wall was flexing that much from my listening position, until I got up to answer the phone. Tomorrow I will get the ladder out and see what the ceiling is doing. I fear it is also flexing, house is made of cardboard...lol.
I have tried the theater mode and the music mode. I prefer the music mode, the movie mode cuts off too much of the low frequency impact for my liking. Iron Mans footsteps did not seem as deep, gunfire and missile explosions did not have their full impact. I have never heard the bullets from those aircraft sound so clean.
Sub is positioned just to the left of my center channel speaker, out about 1 foot from the screen wall. So, about 1/3 mid wall placement. Sounds really good here for music and movies at the listening position. There is one large bass trap in the left front corner of the room, I have not gotten around to making more. Corner loading the sub was too much, peaks into the 116s. and a bit boomy. I wonder how much of that DB is from the walls moving/vibrating...
