Does it matter if sub goes in left front corner or right front corner?

    I have a 12x20 room and the wall with the tv and stereo is the same all the way across (no doors, windows, etc). Everything in the room is even actually with the door in the back center of the rear short wall and the furniture is all evenly placed in the room (mirror image if you were to fold in half)

    With this situation, can I put the sub in either front corner (tv wall) and get the same performance? Or will one side work better then the other and why?

    Should be identical in either corner.

    You should try the corner with the stiffiest walls.

    ex: if you have a corner made of exterior walls or in a basement, two wall of concrete.There should be a significant

    difference between two corners made of different material.

    Experimentation is everything.

    Don't be ridiculous Todd. You put the left channel sub in the left corner and the right channel sub in the right corner[​IMG] [​IMG]
    Seriously, it won't matter but I actually have dual SVS subs one in each corner and I couldn't be happier

    It most certainly could be differences as to relations to the seating positions,performance wise.

    When it comes to room accoustics there isn't "one size fits all",you really need to experiment to find out what exactly the "characterisrics" of those corners.

    From my many trials placing my sub in different areas of my room, I did find that placing it in a corner near an outside wall (I'm on a crawlspace) produced much tighter bass than a corner made up of two inside walls. Bass was noticeably "boomy" near the inner walls.

    Your mileage may vary.

    The right is always preferred over the left.[​IMG]
