Default Do you do this with your subwoofer placement?

Thumbs up

Good to know but will not work in my situation and I am in the process of moving my sub right now.
I have objects that can not be moved in front of my walls so any measurements are not applicable to my situation.
Tried the sub crawl last night but that didn't work.
I will be using the trial and more trial method
Thanks for the info,I will be saving it in my Home Theater folder.

No. This looks great in a "perfect" world but I usually find that our HT is set up in the real world which has limitations caused by columns and doors and such.

Vague thread titles suck.

There should at least be a subject listed. "Do you do this with your subwoofer placement?" would be more appropriate.

To undestand some of these concepts, go to A Guide to Subwoofers (Part II): Standing Waves and Room Modes thread. All the theoretical suff is explained in post #1. Post #2 has all the practical stuff.
