And by firing into the back of the sectional do you mean the side with the woofer or the back with the ports? I'm guessing side with the woofer.
So nothing in the front will work?
If not it looks like I'm going to have to prewire that spot.
The front right corner would be fine, but you would not get the same visceral impact you would get with the sub behind your back.
Yes, woofer firing into the back of the sofa.
Before you pre-wire, try the sub in different locations. If you like the behind the sofa position best, then you wire it there. You can also do the subwoofer crawling method if you have a good measurement system like the REW. Put the sub on your best spot on the sofa, woofer at ear level. Place the mike at the back of the sofa where the woofer would be if the sub is there. Adjust for around 80 dB reading at 40 Hz. Run the frequency response. Move the mic to other locations around the room where you can put the sub. Take a measurement at each potential location. Do not change the signal level between runs. Show me all the curves and I will help you pick the best location.
