i had never thought about a "speaker cockpit"; nice one.
there is no other place i could have put the subs, the room is only 9 x 9 x 16 ft.
When i'm in my seat, there's only about 5 ft. of free space behind me;
book/disc cases occupy most of that wall, plus the back surround speakers.
in fact, i think this size room is the minimum in order to have as few compromises as possible in setting up for good sound.
also, i think the subs' positions in the room corners are a very good place in my room, as you can have an idea if you check the Fr. graph up at the top of this page.
Frequency response is very good, as also phasing with the M80s.
thanks a lot for the suggestion.
