So I intended to put my subwoofer in MLP today and move the mic, but it actually was easy enough to move the 100 lb HSU sub. I have 6 possible positions around the front stage, since I do not want to sacrifice rear space with a primary sub (it is a kids play and yoga area). Let me know if there is anything I need to change with my graphs.
Theater layout and subwoofer positions
Position A (Right 23 in from front)
Between A and B (Right 40 in from front)
Position B (Right 65 in from front)
Position C (Left 11 in from front)
Between C and D (Left 25 in from front)
Position D (Left 38 in from front)
Position E (Left of center speaker)
Position F (Right of center speaker)
So, some issues I ran into:
- Both Left and Right of center are right in front of a projector screen and had some recurrent dips, even after correcting subwoofer level (concrete floor is not completely level). I have no idea what this was, but I could hear some type of 'resonance' during the measurements
- While moving the sub to F-Right of Center, the volume turned up by 10% (9 o'clock to 10 o'clock) and not recognized until after moving the sub.
1. Am I correct in assuming that my best sub positions for MLP is Between C-D (left front), followed by between A-B?
2. My original listening position position is A. In theory, would bass traps be able to remove some of the peak at 40 Hz?
3. Are my curves from A-B and C-D good, or would I need to do anything else with the sound? I know that waterfalls would likely help, but I wanted to get the placement first.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
