Suggestions on placement of 2 18's nearfield (Am I out of my mind?)
Some may have seen my other posts on some changing around I am making.
I decided I am going to go with 2 SI-HT18's in seperate ported boxes.
I did a sub crawl with my SVS again tonight and confirmed all my heavier bass seems to linger around the back of the room, so I am considering placing them nearfield flaking the corners of my theater seats, but I am weary of this as I dont want everyone else to go in bass overload. Also to the one side there is a pole close by, so I am not sure of the effect of a metal pole with bass close by from subs that big.
I am thinking of either DiySound StoneHenges or Maybe a Fully Marty's (Stonehenges being more manageable sized and cheaper though)
Here are some pics of what I am dealing with. If I go up front by my screen, I can only do like MartyCubes which are smaller and not in the optimal bass zone, but will punch head on.
The white things in the back are what I could find to similate subwoofer boxes for now. lol, but I was thinking of angling in like that.
