    Guys -- I'm finally getting around to building my first dedicated HT room [​IMG]
    I plan on building a riser that will elevate the TV/fronts/gear rack and my SVS. Which got me thinking...
    Will elevating my sub on a riser have any negative repercussions?
    I plan on building the riser w/2x8 and 3/4 ply. It will be sitting on a carpeted concrete floor.
    Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Todd, you shouldn't have any necessarily negative repercussions, because the materials you are using for the riser are the same usually found in floors.

    That being said, you may lose a bit of output due to the extra air space under the SVS, but that's easily compensated for with a turn of the volume knob. Just make sure that the riser is coupled to the floor well (either by sheer weight or physical fasteners) so it doesn't rattle during bass-heavy passages...

    Tim is correct, in theory. In practice...the lose of headroom would be so small it might not even demand you recalibrate...but as Tim mentioned...it could.
