I just got a BIC 12" sub for my new HT setup, which I bought due to recommendations from the wizards on this forum. It sounds outstanding (but, of course, this comes from a noob who hasn't ever had one before) - I'd have just bought the $99 Costco KLH special if I hadn't been following things here.
A question - this is a down-firing sub and it has a round, open port on one side, a side immediately adjacent to the side with all of the switches and connections. The instructions give no indications as to which direction the port should be pointed in.
If I have the sub next to a wall, should the port point out into the room, parallel to the wall, or back towards the wall? Likewise, if I end up putting it in a corner, should the port point into the corner, directly towards one of the walls, parallel to a wall, or out into the room? Or does it even matter?
