    I have a question concerning the optimal placement of my SVS 20-39CS. My setup is in a fairly small room, approx 13x12. Right now I have my TV on top of a 3 foot wide, 3 foot high entertainment unit. This unit is placed diagonally across a corner in the room. I know it is a little strange, but it has too be set up this way because of cabinits in the room.
    Originally, the only corner available was the space behind the entertainment unit and the wall. This forced me to place the sub along the middle of the 13 foot wall. I've heard that corners are the best spots for subs, so I experimented and placed it behind the entertainment unit next to the corner. It sounds like there is a little bit more kick in music and home theater, but is it bad to have the sub almost completely blocked in? Sorry if this is a confusing post, thanks in advance for the help.

    Justin, do you have a rear corner of the room available? I have two of the 20-39cs's located in the rear of my HT near a couch and they sound great there. If not and it seems to sound good where you have it I would leave it alone. Have you calibrated your system with a SPL meter?
