Hi everyone, I'm new here and this is my first post but I have been into HT for the last few years and have been slowly building up my primary HT which is located in the basement and which is also a man cave. I have been pouring through all the information in this forum for weeks and I have to say that it has been a great education. After reading through the threads on subwoofer positioning and good bass I realized that my seating position may be less than good. So I started to move around the room with some heavy bass tracks playing and to my dismay found that my primary seating position was the worst place for bass.
I sit in the center of the room (length wise). I just recently learned that this is a bad spot to sit. No problem, I can move forward a foot or two but the problem is, that doesn't seem to be my only issue. What I found out is that in every seated position around the room the bass disappears, but it is strong in a lot of standing positions. It is especially good two feet in front and a foot off to either side of my sofa (the primary listening position). When I say it's good I mean it's good as long as I am standing.
I did some searches to see if there were any threads on the subject of bad bass in seated positions but I didn't see any. If there are any out there I apologize for starting this one. But my question is: has anyone run into this problem before? I really don't plan on standing up for movies or music listening.
Here is some information that might be helpful:
I have a Denon 3313CI running a 7.2 system with an infinity Alpha 1200 and an infinity CSW 10 as my subwoofers (I am also looking to upgrade my subs but want to figure this out before I drop the money on new subwoofers).
My room is a rectangle of about 3250 cu ft with a single hallway running off to one side.
I just can't figure out why the best bass seems to be floating around at about 6 feet in the air.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
