Default Should I rearrange the four subwoofers?

I just got two more f113v2 (Thanks Ivan!). So I just put them on the inside of the XR100's. The mains are in an equilateral triangle of 11ft with the primary seating position. Thoughts?

Mark.......A qucik look in the JL Audio Fathom manual produced this page of suggested locations for a four subwoofer setup.

Yep, its not possible to do anything close to that. They all have to be up front.

It's two subs on the inside, two on the outside, or stacked inside or out.

If I put the XR100's on the outside then it messes up my triangle...

Man that’s a lot of bass output.

Not sure why you’d want 4 subs up front.

My two f113s are sitting at 25% gain and that is plenty in terms of output.

Adding more subs can be tricky - but is really only for two reasons: exaggerated bass output or smoother room response.

I don’t think 4 up front will give you any smoother response than 2 up front.

If you can’t place two in the back (or to the sides) I’m not sure what to say.

2nd system?

You have four subs. I agree with everyone’s comments here. It looks to me that you want to spread them around your room to correct low frequencies issues within your room.

I suggest that you do a google search about where to best position subwoofers in a room.

Send a picture of showing the rest of the room and folks may be able to make further suggestions.

I think your four subwoofers need two more TV screens to keep them company!

I would pull the main speakers a bit more into the room and use the top left diagram Dan posted.

Have you considered stacking the subwoofers in pairs?

A while back, another member stacked three pair of RELs at the front of the room
