Hey everyone: A little while ago I've started on my new HT system, but due to some work I've had to do and lack of money, the project has been put on hold, untill now. Right now the setup consists of two Mini-Monitors placed on top of some old towers, an ESB Shiva, and two Atoms in the back. After having the sub for a while, I've noticed huge peaks and valleys throughout the room, and although the responce at listening position is pretty good, there are other places where the bass is much tighter, louder, and more defined. I've experimented with different placements, but it seems to be working best in the position it is right now. Here's a few pics to get us started: First, a layout of the lower level: Basement A Few Pics of the Room Pic1 Pic2 And The Sub I used oak veneer to cover it as you can see in the first few pics, and later gave it a rosewood stain finish. The bottom may look a little worn in the last pics as i've been moving it around, experimenting with placement.

Inside So a few things I've been wondering about: SVS subs all have a 'plate' on the bottom upon which the sub rests. Would it be beneficial to create one of those to perhaps change the in-room response? Right now it's firing down onto carpet, which is laid over linoleum, which sits on top of the concrete. Also, should I try some inexpensive room treatments to perhaps even out the peaks? Enjoy the pics, and thanks for all of your help.
