SMH Can you guys give your opinion on where to place my KRK subwoofer? (pictures)

Hey people! long time lurker here an there, finally decided to join the site.


I believe I made big mistake by getting the KRK... even though I really wanted it, but I guess I didn't realize how huge this thing was... im thinking 10inches? How bad could that be? I FORGOT ABOUT THE CABINET AND THE AMP INSIDE ADDING EXTRA SIZE! Smh.

Any thoughts would be appreciated... I feel like I should have went with some 8 inch monitors... but by the time i thought about that I already had my 5 inch krk rokits, so I figured hell, I'll get the sub an i'll be fine.... yea right smh. I wanted to put the sub under my desk but it wont fit, Im either thing about placing it next to the pc in the corner (turning it down low as possible) OR the spot in my room where the water bottles are....

Help please!

P.S. I also messed up again by going with the Yamaha hs50s instead of the hs80s... I ordered these before the sub came in smh....

Sub

Under the bed? Against a wall at mid point is often seen recommended.

Mid

At mid point along an axis, the sub will be in a null. Thus it will not drive that particular axial mode strongly. This can be useful.
I really can't be there from the pics. But I can suggest, just a starting point to stimulate experiment and measurement, under the bed, mid wall.

As you try different locations, tweak phase. The level should be low enough that you do not hear the sub as a separate source.

In the words of a famous speaker builder: "If it fits in the room, the room is large enough"
