I hear people talk about near field placement from time to time. What is the advantage of this? I'm pretty much a rookie but I lurk these forums all the time trying to learn. I realize room accoustics will play a huge part and also even room layout but for discussions sake if you were to have a great response from your sub you shouldn't ever be able to tell at all if it is in front of you, behind you, near you, or away from you should you? Real world applications may indeed restrict you from certain areas as you might be able to tell that the sound is in fact directional but given a "perfect room" you shouldn't be able to tell where the sub is no matter where you placed it correct?
