I am hoping someone can lend a hand w/ a basic question related to sub placement. I recently posted a question relating to sub recommendations and ended up finally going with two SVS 12 NSD cylinder subs. I am eager to get everything tweaked and send back a full review to everyone (hopefully will help others although I am not too knowledgeable when it comes to audio knowledge). Anyway, my setup is a 25x15' theater room with main level 8' ceiling, small stage (laminate), 103' projector screen and total of 3 level seating at 6' step-ups. The minor issue I have not is that my space on stage is a little crammed for the cylinder speakers to set in front, one in each corner. It may very well work it I simply raise up the screen 4-5" but not sure yet. In that scenario, each speaker will be nearly touching the corner walls, sort of jammed in the corners. I think that will end up working but wanted to get someone's opinion on what would be optimal. So choices are to keep each up in front, raising the screen so that the top of speakers are nearly flush w/ screen. Or, maybe one speaker in the front left corner and another positioned anywhere else such as back left or back right. Or, I could wire so that both are in back corners. (not sure if that will be a little annoying for others given proximity of soft to sub?). Any difference if subs sit on laminate stage vs. carpeting? Basically, looking for optimal positioning for a 25x15' standard rectangle theater room. Better to have specific inches of speaker to wall, better to keep both on one wall, vs diagonal, etc.... I am guessing this is a pretty dumb, basic question but any help would be appreciated. Sound number one, aesthetics secondary. (I am hoping wife will go for this). Again, I will be sure to send a full write-up including my interactions with SVS customer help. thanks!
