So I have a good sized space in a basement (~15'x21'x9') that I'm planning on turning into an entertainment area. Right now the room is pretty much empty with no carpeting and no seats, but it is finished. It does have some furniture in it, but most of it won't stay. I would like to run a subwoofer cable (or two) now before we get carpet and paint. So what would be the best way to go about this?
Will a sub in an optimal spot in this non-finished area translate to an optimal spot once it is finished?
Would an older Onkyo HTIB sub end up in the same position of the room as a better quality sub? I don't know what my budget will be for a sub just yet, so if I could use my Onkyo sub to find out where to place the outlet that would be awesome.
What about placing a second outlet for a second sub?
Also I think I want to play around with REW. I have a radioshack analog spl meter, but I don't have a cable to hook it up to my computer. What cable do I get to hook it up into either an Audigy 2 or Asus P5Q Pro with a Realtek ALC1200 sound chip? Do either of those even work with REW?
