MUST a sub sit on the floor?


Unregistered guest
This is my media stand: &storeId=12&productId=11149&langId=-1&parentCats=10104*10174

On top of it is a 20" TV and a Sony compact system, in between 2 small bookshelf speakers on the sides. My powered sub is on the floor next to it.

When my new receiver arrives, I'll put it in the center bottom shelf and get rid of the Sony compact on top.

This should leave me just enough room to squeeze the subwoofer into its place, next to the TV and with the two bookshelf speakers remaining at the sides. Is that a good idea?


1. I'm assuming the sub is shielded, but how will it and the TV affect each other?

2. How will having the sub right next to a speaker affect each other?

3. How will the sound of the subwoofer be changed by having it 15 inches off the ground, but more centered to where I'll be sitting? Will it result in a big drop in bass output?

If this is a completely idiotic idea, by all means let loose!

The magnet from the sub would really distort your tv's color and picture, and having of the ground will reduce the amount of things in the room that would shake
