What's the difference between switching the phase(0/180) vs manually adjusting the subwoofer distance? I finally got around to tuning the sub. I've always relied on my towers(klipsch kg 3.5's) to handle the bass. During the living room remodel last year I picked up an original Hsu vtf-2(the old 10 incher), which i assume is the same as the current vtf-1?, for $150. I threw it where I put the in-wall wiring, which was nearfield. Today I performed the subwoofer crawl and found where I'd like to finally put it. I put on a cd to tune it, but i could tell the timing of the bass was off in the new location, so I switched the phase which improved it, but it still wasn't right. Then I remembered the sub distance setting, which was set by YPAO from the previous location, and I adjusted the distance to liking. Is there any difference in setting the distance vs. switching the phase? Is that what "phase alignment" is, timing?
