    How close can a subwoofer be to a speaker without losing that speaker? I have a few different setups I can do.
    One would involve the Subwoofer directly under the center channel speaker, about 12 inches apart.
    The other setup would involve the subwoofer right next to the left rear surround speaker. With my configuration of my room, I'm not exactly sure what the best setup is. I also don't really know how to explain the setup without pictures. I'll work on the pictures, but in the meantime any info and thoughts would be great.
    Thanks

    Sub should be in a corner ideally, next would be along one wall at least, but it really depends on the shape, size, construction of and what't in the room. Proximity to another speaker should not be an issue really, unless there might be some magnetic interference.

    My sub is literally right behind my right main speaker with no problems, and I have an SVS PB2+ which is almost bigger than it.
