I plan to place my PB2-Ultra up front next to my speakers, but it will be in a corner than has a window on one wall and the sliding glass door to the back yard on the joining wall. Any ideas what to do to keep the buzzing down? Can you put a little piece of dynamat or something on the metal frames to absorb the bass? That stuff works in my car, wouldn't see why not in the house Posted Image

Scott, why not just wait and see if you actually have a problem?

Even with my little JBL subwoofer, the wires in the walls buzz, and not much I can do about that.

Hey, I have the same problem. Insulated glass with those faux mutton in-between the panes of glass.

With my SVS 25-31 located right below the window, serious buzzing at sub frequencies when the rest of the ssppeakers are relaltively quiet. Big ship coming over the mountain in Close Encounters is the worst.

Fixes?

Try the Auralex GRAMMA. I have one and it cuts down on the vibrations in the room when you place it under your sub.
