Center cluster, and hanging subwoofer
« on: January 04, 2019, 09:48:14 am »

I need help with sub-woofer a hanging question.

Our ceiling is sloped, about 9' in the back of the room, up to like 20' up front. 

I have a center cluster of speakers hanging from the ceiling, and angled down to avoid reflecting off the ceiling.

I want to hang our new dual 15" subwoofer from the ceiling between the current speakers.  I know bass is omni-directional but should I angle the sub too in order to avoid those reflections, or does it not matter?

You'll need to update your username to your actual name before we can help you out.

Thanks!

At subwoofer frequencies, angling a single cabinet will have almost zero effect.

That's kinda what I thought, but wanted to ask around too.  Thanks!

Just a general disclaimer about rigging.

It should be done properly, approved by a structural engineering firm, with correct hardware, the cabinet should be rated to fly, and the structure should support the weight.
