Originally placed the subwoofer to the top left of the room. (next to the tv) checked the Hsu forum and as recommended by Dr.Hsu moved the sub to the back of the room (where the seating area is) in the center about 1 inch off from the couch parellel.
The difference? It seems like the sub is not even playing.. I literally had to check a few times to see if the sub was working. It is airy as hell, the bass from movies seem literally like they are coming from the speakers. Man this is pretty awesome. I had no idea how imuch the placement makes the sub sound different.
Will have to do more listening, but it sure seems like a seamless speaker to sub transition for 5.1 system currently.
All I can say is WOW. For the first time I am somewhat *feeling" the bass frequency depth and different variety of bass frequencies hitting in soundtracks. Also,all i can say is that I dont need couch shakers.
To further add, currently I am somewhat hearing and feeling first hand of bass being 3d. What I mean is, in Batman, i felt the bass behind me once, then bass hitting the front of my seating area, then completing with the bass hitting to the right of me. And in some other scenes, the bass sounded hollow and airy, and in some other scenes, it was ONLY shaking my couch, then once it shook the whole house, then in one other scene, the bass was onlly felt by my feet which means it was only hitting the floor.Edited by Brian323 - 7/7/13 at 2:25am
