hey, haven't posted here in a while. I had a question about cutting up or buying small carpet strips and putting them under my front speakers (def techs) to improve my subwoofer response and clean it up a little. I recently put pergo floors in my room, cause of the dog hair problem, and I knew it would put my home theater at a handicap with reflections and bass but I couldn't take the dog hair anymore. Anyway I just want to know if this makes sense or not, to put small carpet squares under under my def techs and use the spikes as suggested by the manual? I figured it could help smooth out the bass a little. Next I have an odd shaped room that places me pretty close to the tv, and I got the center channel around an inch over the tv on a shelf (cant put it on the TV, its a Sony Wega and they have a curved top), but im concerned im getting alot of reflection off the back because it points above the back of my couch. I wanna fix this with a sound absorption panel, but I would sort of rather save money and make one, unless theres some real good deals out there. Not really looking to spend over $50 for 1 planel. Any instruction sites or books out there to make them?
