I wouldn't. If you're going to try to hide anything, you'll need to know how big it is. Also, it'd be nice to play with locations and see what works for you before you cover everything up if you need to put in a drop somewhere.

Just a quick FYI post.

I pulled the trigger now rather than when I have finished the room. Also the aussie dollar is worthless so prices willl likely increase by 15% - 30% over the next few months.

Fingers crossed it'll arrive in 6 weeks or so. Not that I have a room to put it in yet ;)

Cheers,

Looking forward to hearing what you think of it. It's an interesting design.

I've been doing some research into setting up a sub (In anticipation ;))

And then general gist goes like this:

Phase
-connect the L + R speakers
-connect the sub to the receiver sub out
-setup the L + R speakers to be large in the receiver
-set the crossover (80Hz in my case)
-switch the receiver to output stereo
-play some music with mid + low bass
-have some one switch the phase back and forth on the sub
-which ever is loudest is the correct phase

Setup
-Once phase is correct
-set the L + R speakers to small in the receiver
-play music
-adjust the level of the sub


Any suggestions for the types of music I should be using? I heard music with the lower end of a piano or an upright double bass could be really good?

Or would I be better off getting a setup DVD or similar?

Cheers,
Simon
