Dual Sub Placement - Midwall and Front Corner?

Hi all,

I'm planning to get dual subwoofers in the near future and am researching ideal subwoofer placement.

Attached are some photos of the listening space to give some perspective.

My thought at the moment is to try placing one sub next to the left bookshelf speaker to position it midwall and the second sub would be where the current Klipsch sub is sitting. Has anyone done this type of positioning before with any success? Because the right side of the room is glass doors, having both subs midwall is a no go.

Another option is to place the sub at the opposite corner of the existing sub, but I'm not sure if that's ideal with the bookshelf speaker being basically right in front of it.

Having both subs in the front is another option but I've noticed annoying resonances in the baseboard heater when I had my sub there before. Those might be eliminated if I use some rubber feet to elevate and decouple the sub from the floor, but no way to be sure until I try.

The only way to know for certain what will work best in your space is to try out different placement options and, ideally, to take measurements using something like a Umik-1 + REW, or the all-in-one Dayton OmniMic V2.

(FWIW: Both my subs are up front and symmetrically placed - a "no-no" scenario that is actually the best configuration for my space. Go figure. )

Same for me, tried literally every inch in my room, measured measured and measured and even used REW room sim and elevated the subs as well but in the end the front wall 1/4 and 3/4 sounded best so settled there.
