Has anyone done this?!? Answered

If you don't have it set up like this already, then try it. If you have a smallish room, try putting your subwoofer in the corner. In my room the bass lights up like the 4th of july compared to when the box is sitting in the middle of my room. I'm listening to it right now and it just sounds wicked. You the bass more than you hear the subwoofer itself moving and groaning at the low notes.

. There is a sweet spot. Ie, there is a place, X cm from the back wall and Y cm from the side wall, where it will sound best to you. Play around with it.

I had also noticed there is a sweet spot for audio by one of my speakers on my desk on the shelves, where the sound is louder if you put your head by it, it's not actually coming out of the speaker, but just happens to be where the sound bounces off the wall I suppose. It's sometimes unbelievable how placement can change the sound, that sometimes drives me nuts trying to figure out where my speakers should go.

. It also helps if you elevate the speakers a few inches off the floor. So does having acoustically reflective surfaces ~2 m around each speaker (eg, wood, linoleum, concrete, drywall, &c). And the speaker/listener angle (both up-and-down and sideways), especially on the high end - generally aimed slightly up (leaned back) and straight at the listener. . Placement and composition of furniture is another one to try. . Experiment. It all depends on the speakers, the room, and your ears.
