My fianceé wants to put the sub in our bay window, and to keep out

the light, we have curtains in front of it. However the curtains are very

thin, you can almost see through them. When drawn, the cutains will

be about 60-70cm from the drive unit in the sub.


So, is it a good place to place a sub, and is it ok with the curtains?

Nich,


I hope you have rattle proof windows as the sub will surely give them a good shake. I also trust that you have forgiving neighbours as glass isn't the best insulator of sound. Lastly, depeding on the location, you may have more dead spots (standing waves) than if the sub is in another location. Experiment as it doesn't hurt to try it in the bay window but IMO I would try to find another spot for it preferably on a solid floor.

I'm sorry. The sub IS on a solid floor, just in a bay window(hope it's

the right word - a normal five part window, just the wall bows out in

a half circle):) I hope this makes me easier to understand..

By putting the sub by a large window, you will not be able to use the window to help reinforce the bass. If it was a solid wall, the corner kind of acts like a horn and increases the bass (also makes it more boomy). Again, doesn't hurt to try it.

The windows don't go all the way down to the floor. They stop

about a meter up. But I'll try it. Thanks.
