    Hi - I have a 10" CSI/Speco Dream Series SPW-1000 in-wall subwoofer, and I was wondering how high off the ground should I mount it for best performance? The room is a 20X10 rectangular room and the sub will mount along the 10' side. Since it is a basement, it has concrete floors, but we will be sealing it and then putting carpet over. I'm not sure if that makes a difference or not. I've got the perfect spot near a corner to mount it on, but I can't find anything as to how high off the ground it should be mounted. Thanks!

    Crazy idea here for you. Being in a basement, have you considered ceiling mounting it!

    You'll probably get some good advice on this over at the Cult of the Infinitely Baffled web site. I have mine the same height off the ground as an HVAC air intake vent elsewhere in the basement. It's covered with an air intake grate and looks just like another HVAC vent.

    See that innocent looking air intake grate over near the screen? [​IMG]

    If I were you I'd seriously consider putting one of these beneath/behind each of your two main left and right speakers. That little 10" is going to be struggling to put out much oomph in that room.
