I Need Advise on How to Get Better Bass from My Dual Subs Without Moving Them
So I have dual VTF-3 MK5 HP subs in my living room area that is about 25 ft x 20 ft, with 15 ft ceilings. The entire area is large and VERY OPEN (to the kitchen, foyer, stairs to the 2nd level, etc...). The problem that I have is that given how the room is laid out, there is literally only ONE speaker configuration that will work and not be completely clumsy, and that is with my subs in the front next to my tower speakers with a wall behind them. I literally have nowhere else I can put these things due to my room layout and size. The issue that I am having is that if I stand to the side of my subwoofers a few inches from them, the bass is WAY more room shaking than where my normal listening spot is (about 11 ft from them centered in between them). I have the sub volume knobs at about 60% right now, but I am wondering if I should go higher. I also have one port closed on each sub. I'm not sure if I should crank the volume higher, or if there is some other trick/setting/configuration that I need to implement to get better bass from my subs (again, a sub crawl won't work). I am NOT a trained audiophile like some on here, but is it possible that the bass that I am hearing and thinking is good bass is that "boomy" bass that people always say isn't actually good? The bass is very strong in the corner right next to my subs too.
Any help given would be great, I just want to get this as right as I can given the constraints that I have.
