    My Mom's family room is 14' x 14'. One open doorway, fireplace in the back, big window on one side. No treatments (except curtains).

    Is there anything we can do to counter the negative effects of the dreaded square?

    Hi Shane,

    Any furniture in the room will help to break up/absorb bouncing sound and standing waves. A couch/chair, coffee table and even the entertainment center or furniture that holds the TV will help.

    Some wall hangings (pictures/rugs/etc) will also help.

    You may have to move the sub around a little if you end up hearing "boomy bass."

    Just remember that it's not definite that you're going to have any problems. This is a "wait and see" type deal. All may be just fine. [​IMG]

    If this is about speaker placement, you might find the following link to have some value.
