    I can do this but the back left for sure has an outlet. Perhaps back right does as well. Will check.

    With bass management, when the fullrange speakers are set to large the subwoofer only gets the LFE channel. If the surrounds are set to small the bass below the crossover frequency for the surrounds goes to the subwoofer as well as the LFE channel. If the center is also set to small it's bass is sent to the subwoofer below the receiver's crossover frequency for the center.

    So, if nothing was coming from the subwoofer, then perhaps there wasn't an LFE channel in the source content. Or maybe some other setting was just wrong - like redirecting the LFE channel to the main stereo speakers since they were set to large.

    My intuition is that the most reinforcement from the wall boundaries will come from the sub being where I recommended since the back wall and the rear / left-side wall will reinforce the output over a larger area rather than the other side of the rear.

    But, I'd try both if I were in your position.

    Got it. Getting 3 new toys all at once with little time to read, can lead to a ton of overlooked variables

    Oh holy cow the wife would kick my rear. Besides acoustics are next priority. Then swapping out existing speakers. Then amps

    Follow up. I've been throwing around the idea of another sub. Wife seems to not violently object.

    That would be later this year most likely. Still getting mains and center first.

    That could make for amazing bass. I do strongly recommend getting an identical twin to the sub you have to prevent any performance differences from causing the subs to fight one another to make sound. That can happen when one sub's port tunes the enclosure to 20Hz and another playing the exact same signal is tuned to 30Hz. In the range between about 35Hz and 18Hz, they could be out of polarity and cancelling each other out.

    It would be for sure. I like the current sub I have . So getting another appeals to me. But my order right now is

    Center channel
    Amp for speakers

    So may be a while.

    Looks like PSA replaced my 15V with a new model but the only thing that has changed are

    1. Amp
    2. 12V trigger
    3. Balanced inputs

    I talked with them and the performance is very close so I can use the two together without issue

    Happy to hear you are still enjoying your new PSA, I haven't gotten the nerve to purchase one. But cheers to you

    Last time I checked, nerve wasn't needed, unless...

    Batman and heeman like this.
