OH, I have one of those, I didn't like the results when i used it.

Then a new baby arrived 3 weeks early and haven't had time since to mess around, luckily my theater works at all!

I place my subs along the walls. The .1 sits along the left wall a few feet ahead of the front of the front wall & a mid-bass module for the front channel sit along the front wall approx 1' from center stage.
Also a rear mid-bass module sits along the back wall just right of the listening position.

The choice was made after hours/days of moving the subs to various places/positions in search of subjectively smooth response. I utilized various sine wave sweeps to all but eliminate major issues with room modes. One of which was a strange localizing of 60/65hz on the right side of the room where there are no subs, not to mention a massive peak at 45/50hz.

I'm very happy with the response I've been able to achieve although I'm considering the addition of another sub/bass module. biggrin.gif

Sincerely, the frugal audiophile

Took out a bedroom to deepen the media portion of the den and make a third bath creating a 3' x 3' x 8' windowed alcove.
Sub sits in alcove on tile floor, under and behind the suspended Bose 301 Lft front. Three different circuit breakers control that shared wall.
Can't let the guest running a hair dryer while heating up the infrared sauna blow your jam can you?
