    I have a small powered subwoofer (Energy EPS-100) and wanted to place it in a corner behind my television set (Mits 55" Rear projection).

    The set is placed so that the corner is directly behind the set (I'd say "caddy-corner", but when I see it in writing I don't know how to spell it or if it's just a Pennsylvania term..)

    Anyway, will this cause any problems? Will the low frequency be 'trapped"?

    Thanks,

    John

    It's "catty corner" and since bass is generally augmented by corner placement, you should be fine. If it isn't, find a new spot for it.

    Trust me, John, it’s not just a Pennsylvania term – I’ve heard it all my life here in Texas. [​IMG]

    A much used "trick" is to put the subwoofer at your listening position and crawl around until you hear the "cleanest" bass. It sounds strange (and will earn you some strange looks), but it sure worked in my room.

    Thanks everyone.

    I just hooked up a new receiver but didn't take into account the cables when I measured the space I had for it on the shelf..

    :b
