next week I should hopefully be getting my eD A2-300 sub delivered but am trying to figure out the optimal place to put it.


In the picture are the only 3 real places I can put it. the picture is taken next to my main viewing area. I was figuring A would be the best place to put it since the other couch isnt in between the sub and the main listening position.


What do you guys think the best choice of my 3 possible locations would be?

There us no way to tell except to put it in each location and then try it. Does your receiver have any room correction capabilities?

Its an onkyo 608 so idk about that. honestly I doubt I would be able to tell the difference which is why I asked if there was one area that looked obviously better than any of the other spots. Not a big audiophile so dont think i would pick up on which spot sounded the best

It really is about listening to some heavy LFF movies and deciding what sounds tighter with good low freq. response. I had my sub in the front right corner of my room. This is often cited as a good spot and for many it is. However for me, moving the sub along the right side wall eight feet produced a perfect, and I do mean perfect, flat freq. response at high loudness levels. Trial and error really is a good method if you only have 3 possible locations.

Put that new sub on your listening seat and crawl around till you find the best sound. That is where your sub should end up.

This will present a problem if its at the intended seating position, no?

That's where the sub will be so it can't be the best spot. He only has three spots so he should try those. The crawl method presumes you have more latitude for positioning.

Depends on how heavy the sub is, how big the space is, how big the OP is...you could always do a "constrained crawl".
