Question for you all. Ive got two subs. A VTF2MK3 and a VTF3MK2. Im running 5.2 for my system. Due to mostly aesthetics and my OCD nature of wanting to be balanced, Ive got my 2 subs on my front wall as pictured here:
Now, if you look at my caveman-like scratch paint drawing, Im considering moving the front right sub to right behind the sectional (the red boxes indicate my idea). If you look at my drawing, the half wall is a 4 foot tall barrier between the family room and the kitchen. Total length of the entire area is about 45 feet, width is about 16 feet. That half wall actually is reflecting more bass than I imagined it would, thus putting my primary seating fairly close to the center of the room. Thus, Im in a bit of a null. Ive done a sub crawl, and actually the front left corner was the second best placement, the first being right at my sliding glass door in the corner of sorts on the half wall. I cant put a sub there because of access issues getting to the back porch. As it sits now Im really not completely UNsatisfied with my bass. Its pretty flat, solid, and hits. But if I were to stand in that semi-corner at the half wall and the sliding glass door, there is a noticeable difference, both in db and in clarity. In an effort to eliminate that null, Im thinking of putting the VTF2MK3 currently in the front right side right behind the sectional.
Currently I have both subs gain matched at 85db. The VTF2MK3 is running with 2 ports open, the VTF3MK2 (which just had an amp upgrade to a VTF3MK4 amp) is running with one port open, Qcontrol set at .4, and EQ set at 2 (Ported Max Headroom Mode).
What say all of you? Dr Hsu?
