There is a side wall with no subs. So there might be a good location somewhere along that wall to be found using the crawling method. Also possibly behind the seats. Pictures of the whole room can help.

Ivan,

That is awesome!

Question- if you only had the 4 in front (and didn’t have the Gotham’s) wouldn’t you redistribute the subs and have 2 up front and 2 in back (as opposed to just 4 up front)?

My experience with JL subs is short but this is what I suggest:
Get 2 or more thick comforters and spread them on the floor in front of your speakers & subs. See how that sounds. I do not know what sonic accessories you have? Bass Tubes? Carpets? If none, then those bare walls and wood floor will echo. Try the comforters or a large area rug and see the difference that makes. I don't see anything hanging on the walls, but the comforter trick is a quick and easy way to test what sound deadening will do.

Get the Subwoofer setup disk from Soundoctor.com.
http://www.soundoctor.com/

Read: http://www.soundoctor.com/whitepapers/index.htm

Call Randy Weaver at JL Audio tech support. Just call the main number, hit tech support prompt and he usually answers. He will spend a long time setting up the subs properly and answer any questions on placement. But first get the disk from soundoctor.

GET A CR-1 IS A MUST- as soon as you can
YMMV
Fred

Yes, I would have 2 in the front and 2 in the back; if I only were using 4 total.

I often watch my office security cameras on the top TV. But usually I watch a UHD disc and play the Nintendo Switch on them. No sports other than MMA.
