My girlfriend and I are currently on the hunt for some new digs. In what ever house we choose I know that the placement of my theater room will be debated. Currently my set up is on my first floor in my 4000+ cubic ft kitchen/living room and my SVS PC12 + does a fine job of producing room shaking bass when I watch movies, at times i can actually feel the couch and coffee table vibrate. My concern is that if I put my setup in a basement in our next house, with a concrete floor, i'll lose that feeling of the room resonating, even though having it in a smaller room will make it easier for the sub to pressurize the room. I know a lot of guys put their theater rooms in the basements. Have any of you guys ever had negative effects when moving your gear from a first or second floor to a basement. I really don't want to buy a shaker or another sub, and I'm not worried about my speakers themselves (Polk Tsi300's, CS10, monitor30's) I'd rather use those funds on a new TV in the new pad. Any input from you fellas would be great.
