    Long story but I have 2 passive subs ( a 10" vented and a 12" inch sealed) any thoughts on putting one behind the TV and one at the back of the room? It actually sounds pretty good but wondering if there is something inherently wrong with this?

    Possible cancellation between the two sub over certain frequencies would be the inherent problem. The best way to avoid this is to use only one sub to find the best place in the room for it (usually a corner). Then stack the second sub on top of the first.

    Dustin is right. Plus, the goal with subs is usually (but not always, depending on preference) FLAT, smooth response as low as possible. You want to put them in locations where they can get that optimum flat response. It's easy to get the bass hump at 60 Hz. It's hard to keep it at that level as you go lower in Hz.

    peace, and happy listening
