Oh, and I probably won't upgrade the monitor any time soon because the furthest people are going to be away is 5-8 feet.

- I still have the topless Samantha Fox poster from back in the day.




HAHAHA Hilarious! I remember that poster. That is too funny.. too many memories.. Back in the day there were a few posters that were popular- like that Samantha Fox topless poster, and most guys had either a Countach or a 911 Turbo poster, and I think a popular model was Carol Alt (or something like that(?)).

Geez, buncha kids. Farrah Fawcett was the poster girl of choice. Samantha Fox was probably about 6 years old when I went to university.

Ahh, "When I went to university." Silly canadians.

Actually, a university and a college are very different in Canada, you can't get a degree in college the same way you do in a university. So if you say "I go to college" people think you are stupid.

It's even wierder than that now. Some of the colleges and polytechnical institutes are getting certified as universities so that they *can* grant degrees. It's really confusing

I'm not a big believer in judging people based on where they went to school, in case it isn't obvious...

Hmmmph, only someone who didn't go to university would say that.

TO the OP: Fitting Axiom's and TWO couches into a tiny ass room, I salute you sir!

As a fellow college student (well graudate now) I too made the leap to Axiom's, however my space is 14' x 10' (basically half of my 20' x 14' bedroom) for the theater + bed, and instead of monitor I fit a 82" screen

However for the total "crash and watch a movie" your setup delivers.

How is seating up on the row, wouldn't you fall off that top couch when you lean back, or the pillows fall down or what?

You lean against the wall on that top couch. That couch is ridiculously comfy, and it isn't a "normal" couch. Very small back rest or whatever you want to call it. There is about 6 or so inches between the couches and wall, enough to lean back at a good angle. You'd have to be pretty darn skinny to fall off behind there.

*sigh*

And so my sub problems begin.

When I watched...what was it...Behind Enemy Lines on the lower "blue" couch, the sub sounded fabulous. Perfectly mixing with my M22's. Well, today I decided to sit up top so I could hear my wonderful QS4's work their magic, and realized the sub was incredibly boomy.

So, I started moving my sub. The problem is, the way my cords have to get routed, I only have about a foot of slack to work with, so moving my sub consists of getting the most out of the cord, and moving the sub in a circle around the cord so the back where the cord "ends" stays in the same spot, if that makes any sense.

So I moved it about a foot, and huge differences could be heard, the sub was definately a lot less audibly heard, but not nessesarily mixing with the mains as well. My friend who has pretty good ears said the sub didn't sound as good when I moved it.

It looks like I'm just going to get a cord from bluejeanscable and get an extender for my sub.

First of all, is there a male-to-male connector I can get somewhere for cheap? That is probably the easy question.

Second of all, about the positioning of my sub. The picture I showed you is pretty much exactly half of my room, the other side just has 2 closets and a bunk bed. I intend to move the sub somewhere in there.

The biggest problem of all is that some peoples heads are about 7-8 feet above other people's heads, and the top row has their heads against a wall. I tried putting the sub on the chair sideways (pointing towards the "theater" area) and it sounded alright, but was very directional for the blue couch since it was pointing RIGHT at them.

Another option is to put the sub behind the blue couch, but it would be under the other couch and below thick wood, I don't think it would sound very good under there, or would it?

All I know is I have a lot of sub moving to do. Problem is I can't really crawl around to find my sub location, unless I levetate.

Is all hope lost?

Maybe one of you audio experts who spent years moving a sub around a room could lend some advice. I'm really a huge noob when it comes to that because mostly I've just had one spot and one and only spot to put my sub, and it always sounded good in that spot.

Dan, Is that a refrigerator next to your upper couch? Is it possible to replace it with your sub, temporarily? Might help with the LFE for the upper seating, but may compromise the experience in the lower seating. There aren't many HT's (that I'm aware of) with seating presenting such extreme variables, so you are in uncharting waters here. Give it a try and let us know how it turns out.
