The "den" looks like you'd get some nice pressurization
. Mabye doing a 180 deg wrt the orientation of with the L/R fronts and L sofa.
I was listening to my system the other day and marveled at the pressuriazation I was experiencing at the two corners up front where my Empire n Tower are co-located. My LP pressurization is no where near that amount. You just feel it all over.
Yes, right in front of the main entrance to the house lol. I'm sure I can do it but it'll involve a lot more trial and error. Plus, I'm thinking of "plugging" the openings to the rest of the house with temporary sound absorption/reflective foam/insulation board, a few inches thick when we're watching movies. There is WAF with that of course but it'll just be a velcro sorta thing then out of site after the film.
Yes, the last thing I tried was the 2nd Empire in the other corner behind the TV. Inititially, it didn't work but it got late last night and I gave up. I'm going to try some more with that location when I get back from Frys.
I think a negatively contributing factor to this room is the turret. The room is not really rectangular with the front entrance wall curved like that. I'm not sure what sort of affect that's having on the sound. I might end up moving the whole shabang to the great room, at least that's rectangular.
The den is out, that's where the LAN party/office is. 4 gaming rigs for multiplayer gaming with the fellas.
Fortunately, there's a double door so we can shut that area off.
Moving around the Empires isn't too much of a deal cuz they're on furniture discs now but the tv is a whole nuther animal. The console it sits on is several hundred pounds and need the other half to help with that one. That's the biggest WAF I have to deal with. I'll try your suggestions after I sneak in a massage to butter her up lol.
