I will let REW decide what is the best location, for now though I'm really liking where they're at. TIA
Jeff: Yes one driver is firing into the back wall and the front firing into the room right at the MLP, on both subs there is 14 1/2 inches from the back driver to an acoustical panel hanging on the back wall below the screen, if the panel was not there then it would be 16 inches. The left sub is 18 inches from an acoustical panel (4 inches thick) on the left side wall and there's a bass trap in the corner, the sub on the right is 24 inches from an acoustical panel (4 inches thick ) on the right side wall. The distance from the front of the subs to the front of the MLP ( couch ) is 7 ft 9 inches. When I had my old sub, Mirage BPS400 dual 12inch drivers, the drivers were mounted on the sides instead of front and back on the XS30SE, once Buckley44 and I get REW up and running I will try multiple driver positions and see what measures and feels the best. I absolutely love the position of the subs right now, looks and sound wise.
