    We are renovating our family room and making some changes to our HT setup. Thinking about dropping the subwoofer under the floor just In front of the couches. Wondering if this is a good idea? Looking for some advice.....

    Ok thanks for these subwoofer ideas. I was thinking about dropping my bottom firing subwoofer, that I have, into a plywood box hung between the floor joists, into the crawl space below my family room floor. Will this work well?

    Here's one of hundreds of examples - http://home.comcast.net/~klone-audio/page13-12Shiva1.html
    Even Tom Nousaine built an IB sub - http://www.nousaine.com/pdfs/Subwoofer%20that%20Shook%20the%20World.pdf If you aren't familiar with Tom, Google is your friend.

    I used to link that sub Tom built when you'd get the question...
    "Is there such a thing as too much sub?"
    :D
