I wouldn't worry too much about adhereing closely to the midwall points since its unlikely those will be the optimal spots given your unique room configuration. Also hanging subs is not something worth attempting given all the energy going through those enclosures. Guys that have tried it invariably put them back on the floor owing to the additional noise from the shelves and the danger of vibrations causing the sub to fall. \:o

That's good to know - Ian's always eyeing up the back wall for mounting another subwoofer 'out of the way'. I leave the house in fear every time . . .

I'm really intrigued by the notion of putting the sub "in mid air" somewhere.

to me I would think there would be little difference between floor/wall and ceiling wall, not sure.

I distinctly remember him talking about how the 80s hung... hanging from the ceiling like that really bringing out SRV's tone, that's what really caught my attention.

Well, personally, I sit much closer to the floor than to the ceiling, so I'm willing to entertain the notion that there could be a difference or advantage \:\)

There was somebody else who was talking about putting a sub up on a plant shelf in the sunroom.

You know, I have a pretty big plant shelf in my living room. Hmmm. But hoisting a sub up there could be quite an engineering feat.

Pictures would be a requirement--not of the finished product, but the journey there.
