I have 2 VBSS subs powered by a single NX1000d. I currently have them both in the front of my room. Bass is quite “boomy” but still shakes the house. I want to move 1 of them to the back corner of the room so the 2 are at opposite corners to see if this helps. Room is a rectangle 13’wide x 23 ft long with 7ft ceiling.

I currently have them wired together in bridge mode (so aprox 300 watts for each sub). Problem with that I cant independently control the phase. I can wire them up separately so I can set phase independently but might reduce the wattage (I think).

I dont have enough speaker wire to move them and try both options (bridged or wired separately A and B). And would rather not buy the wire just to experiment.

Will I lose much output by wiring them to the amp separately? I think wiring together in bridge mode puts out the most amperage per speaker.

Will adding the ability to adjust the phase independently outweigh the loss in power if I wire independently?

EDIT:
Just checking the specs from my amp.. The way I see it is, if I keaveit in bridge mode I get a total of 620watts output (to 2 subs). If I choose stereo it drops to 160w each but adds the ability to independently adjust the phase. I’m thinking thats not a good trade off.. I hat to lose the power by that much.. am I crazy?

Have you measured the room with rew? A measurement would tell us more than the use of the term "boomy".

Unfortunately not.. I dont have the stuff for that. Just going off of how it sounds and what I’ve read about placement. Seems like 2 subs up front isnt the best scenario usually and opposing corners are better so I figured I’s try that. I’m on a tight budget (reason for doing VBSS) so another $100 for a UMIK was down on my list. Maybe I should just get one and figure it pit..lol!

IMHO, it is very important that you do.

Until the mic comes in, experiment. With those room dimensions, I would pick a corner, place one sub 1/3 down the long wall, and 2/3 down the short wall from that same corner. Should get you in the ballpark

So I am still waiting on my drivers but the NX3000D just showed up yesterday. I just powered it on for the first time. Is this thing really the best amp option? It’s very light, doesn’t seem very well made and is loud as hell. I now know why there are so many threads on fan replacement. I honestly am worried that I just dropped $400 on an amp and I now need to consider opening it up voiding the warranty and attempting to replace the fan. But I can not live with that noise.

If the amp isn't in an isolated room, you need the fan mod. It's imo, horribly and unacceptably loud with the stock fan.
It's a class D amp, they aren't the heavy old ABs we're used to.. but it's good. They've been recommended, and working for years.
Load the files, hook it up.. and you're off to the races. Mine has been going for a year now (music/movies/&games) and has been great.
