Top tips on positioning a home cinema subwoofer

While a home cinema system will technically work without a subwoofer, those seeking high-quality sound should consider adding at least one to their setup. Standard speakers are unable to reproduce a full range of frequencies, including the lowest tones, offering inferior sound.

On the other hand, subwoofers can deliver richer and more powerful audio that is often described as being three-dimensional. Many people mistakenly believe that, as a non-directional speaker, the placement of a subwoofer is unimportant, but this is far from the truth. Here are some useful pointers to ensure your speakers produce the best results.

Placing a subwoofer near walls

Corner placement of a subwoofer or positioning it near your walls can enhance performance by increasing its overall bass. Wall proximity reflects the subwoofer’s sound, heightening the strength and power of the bass.

Placing a subwoofer speaker beneath your couch

For an immersive cinematic experience that lets you feel vibrations combined with mighty bass tones, an under-the-sofa installation cannot be beaten. Fortunately, most subwoofers and spaces beneath couches are an ideal match, but beneath your coffee table is also recommended.
