Yea, that's the best way to do it. Good luck.Thanks for all the tips.
Guess I'll probably start out in the front. Then move to the sides and see which sounds the best after I get everything setup. I'll pick a scene from the LOTR's and just play it each time at each position for comparison.
This ought to be interesting. My first venture into the world of audiophildom.
You got it! The frequency response at the primary seating position is dependent on the placement of the speakers (subs), room furnishings AND the contents of the room (i.e. personnel). If you move things around or have more people in the room the subs sound different and may need to be recalibrated. Also, keep on mind that the human body absorbs a lot of the sound and so you may have to crank up the volume when you have a room full of people. Good luck though - a lot of it is very subjective - go with what sounds best to you.I hear ya. The old back ain't what it used to be.
I may as well wait until after the NCAA tourney. I've had to rearange my whole room to get as many people as possible against the back wall. The room fills up quick with 17 people laying around a 17x17 room.
I'm sure the sub will sound different with different furniture groupings.
