Sub location and bass trap location are not really related. If you can post a photo of your room I may be able to suggest something.
I do fine with one killer SVS sub and a huge amount of bass trapping, but some people are happy with two subs.
I have family down your way, and I think we are going to visit sometime in April. I should try and see if I can make an appointment to come and visit you.
Here's a basic layout of my room:
But, it is Tight around the screen and such. There's very little room in the front for bass traps.
Funny, I thought that a sand filled tube would suffice as partly a bass trap, but, I figured that something wasn't quite right about that. The two rear corners, again are going to be pretty tight, but I have more room to work with in those than in the front...
I might put 4" of 703 on the front wall instead of 2 just to help with the lower frequency absorbtion... Thoughts regarding that?
Or should I really take the time to take all the measurements of the room before doing anything?
Also, where those sconces are there are going to be 4 Cherry columns. They are wood, would mass loading the inside of them help absorb some of the low frequencies? They are not at the 1st and 2nd reflection points.
