Was reading a thread from back in December and it reminded me of something =
regarding subs and how many and so an and so on. The best information I kn=
ow of on the subject can be found here: http://www.harman.com/EN-US/OurComp=
They modeled and tested many possible configuration with up to 60 subwoofer=
s, place in many kinds of typical rooms.=20
This should be required reading for anyone serious about high performance b=
ass, at least in this Spyder's humble opinion.
Skipping way ahead their reseach came up with the following conclusion: "O=
ne subwoofer at each wall midpoint is the best in terms of
Std, Max-ave and Max-min but does not support low
frequencies particularly well. Two subwoofers, at opposing
wall midpoints, performs very nearly as well as four at the
midpoints and gives a much better LF factor. One
subwoofer in each corner also has good low frequency
support, but does not perform quite as well as one
subwoofer at each wall midpoint, in terms of Std, Max-ave
and Max-min. If cost and aesthetics are considered,
subwoofers at 2 wall midpoints is preferred."
If anyone knows of newer research that reveals more information about numbe=
r of and and placement of subwoofers, I'd be pleased to know about it.
