My living room is a pretty non conventional shape. It's very very open, has nine foot ceilings, a cursed cubby hole to cram a TV into and just about no where practical to stuff a sub. I am attaching a couple of pics...hoping maybe you guys can help me figure out WHERE in the room I could locate a sub. Here are some ideas on placement and keep in mind the subs I am considering (SVS 25-31PCi, HSU VTF-2, Velodyne CHT-120): 1. I have contemplated moving that TV stand out and cramming the sub in the back corner of the cubby hole. Problem(?): having a sub that close to the TV and other AV units...would a sub cause distortion in the other electrical devices, and/or TV even if shielded? The SVS possibly could FIT but I don't think they're shielded so that may be a no-no. 2. Or sitting it in the crevice next to the right hand side of the fireplace, where it MIGHT be able to use that small column as snoic support while staying out of the way. P: unsightly, self and WAF pending enclosure look/size as well as ability to hide wiring. perhaps more importantly in this location would be that on the mantle of the fireplace there are many pots and breakable items and a large mirror hung on the wall above mantle. would an SVS (about the only placement I could conceive for this monster), Velo, or HSU in this placemnt rattle things off the wall or mantle risking a more expensive and bad situation? 3. OR I was thinking MAYBE just maybe it could go uver the end table next to the couch. The problem with that solution is that there's no way to run a power cord to the sub...so this may not be a solution at all. P: how the heck would I power the sub in this location? Wire I could always run under the carpet ina flat monster style, but there is NO place to plug in the amp for the sub. Does this mean this option is dead? There are no other walls, nooks, crannies to stuff a sub in my house. I dreaded the day I would have to get a sub in this room, and it's either it works on of these ways or no way at all. Other than that and based on this criteria WHICH SUB would be best for me...keeping inmind the Velo will be a best buy at under 300$ brand new...???????????? sucks... if it matters...current stuff: SONY STR-D715, Bose 301 III, Toshiba 32" (later replaced by HLM507 or HLM617... BTW...it's 99.9% HT instead of music...again if that matters in your reccomendations.
