    Depends entirely on your room, the acoustics and your seating position. I like my subs to be in front but that's me and that's also where I get the best response at my seat.

    I looked up those subs and the retail is $1,400. Are you getting a deal? Are they the only subs available in your country?

    Well I am turning my garage into a dedicated home theater(single car), not sure on the dimensions. Guess you can get an idea of the size, but as far as the pricing that is the only price I can find. Even used ones on ebay are almost the same.

    Are you going to run all four from a single amp, 2 amps or 4 amps?I'm not familiar enough with that set up to know. Although it appears Klipsch recommends 1 amp to drive 2, which means there is no reason 1 amp can't drive all 4.

    If you are already building stuff, why not build some subs? For the price of one of those Klipsch subs, you could build a pair of subs that would outperform the 4 you are looking at.
