There are a few variations for subwoofer placement, depending on how many subwoofers you have for your system and the size and shape of the room. If you have four subs, place them cross pattern in the middle of each wall. If you have two, put them in the middle of opposing walls. If you have one, you will need to find the sweet spot, this is the location within the room wher the sub sounds most natural.
