    I have a Velodyne CHT-15, it is front firing, will it sound better facing towards the wall, away from the wall, or into a corner?

    My listening distance from the sub is about 10 ft. I've only had time to try the corner position.

    Face it so the woofer fires toward the listening position. That will likely give you the most impact. Feel free to experiment with other directions. If you face it away from the listening position, try flipping the phase switch.

    I just bought the same Sub and have the same question.

    Any replies would be appreciated.

    Driver orientation is only going to have a minimal effect,but you might as well try them all. The changes by simply moving the driver a couple feet(by rotating the enclosure 180 degrees)will overwhelm any driver orientation effect I think.
