As I'm about to move from an apartment into a house, this will free me to set up my sub again ( a BIG no, no in apartments). Here's my question. What are the advantages/disadvantages of placing the sub directly behind the listening chair (which will be at least six feet from the rear wall and about fifteen feet from the front wall).
The sub in question is a Velodyn DD 12, and the listening area is 30x19 with a cathedral ceiling. This listening space is open to the kitchen/dining area. In other words, we're talking about a lot of room.
My trane of thought is this: with the subwoofer situated so close to the listening seat, wouldn't many of the room mode problems be lessened to some degree?
