Drove down the Niagara Falls yesterday to pick up my VTF3-MK4's, man were those boxes big, squeezed it all in my SAAB 9-5. One had to come out of it's box. I also picked up my Emotiva XPA-3
When I built my theatre I had wired the sub connections in to the sides midway between the front and back. I know understand that this is not a good place to put subs, so I squeezed them in the front on either side of my mains. The only other option is going to be behind my seating in the back corners.
So far I'm extremely happy with the sound, it will kick you in the chest, but it's nice and tight. I have the Q control set for .5, one port sealed, crossover at 60 (even though my denon takes care of it), phase 0 on both, operating mode in EQ 2 and the volume just below 9 o-clock.
I put Thor on this afternoon, and wow is all I have to say. With the subs and the Emotiva my system has really come alive. (mostly from the subs).
Any thoughts on sub placement would be appreciated. The room is 16' d x 13' w, closed, one solid pine door front left. Carpet with dri-core sub floor, 7.5' ceilings etc.
I attached my old plan, you can see I never did a raised floor in the back, not enough room. But the main dimensions and locations are correct.
