    considering the JBL PB10 sub to go along with JBL NPS1 package at JandR.

    As this is a floor firing sub and I live in an apartment with neighbors below, was wondering if this made any difference in terms of how it would disturb them (i.e. how loud I can put it without concern). does a front firing sub like the Sony WB40 make less of an issue here, or does it really make no difference?

    Thanks.

    A down firing sub is likely worse in that case, but I don't think it will make much difference. The WM40 will still produce quite a bit of bass and they will still hear it unless your place is very well insulated.
