Question for you guys: I know that placing a subwoofer in a corner can give you a big boost in SPL (is it 6db, or 9db?). I've read about modes and nulls (peaks and valleys in SPL, essentially) and most of the articles I've read emphasize a near center-line placement on subs to flatten out the response across the room. (If I remember correctly, near center-line is about 2/5 across the room, as opposed to 1/2, 2/3, 3/4...). This assumes a rectangular room, of course, which almost none of us have but... the graphs, numbers, charts and scientific reasoning all seem accurate. So... how come people are always recommending that others "put their sub in the corner". Won't this result in overly boomy bass? And won't this result in vastly different levels of bass depending on where people sit? Should I assume that this means that many of us have a preference for too much bass, even though we labor with SPL meters to match all of our other speakers? Just looking to see if there's some iffy information being passed around of if I don't understand this well at all. Hope somebody can clear this up.
