Subwoofer beside couch- Side table

by Laura2917 / November 20, 2013 9:50 PM PST


We set up to have a subwoofer in either side of our couch, now I'm trying to find a side table to go over it. Having a hard time finding one with no bottom shelf- Is it a bad idea to place the sub on a shelf in a open side table (no sides)? Well it rattle? Just now sure how much longer I should try to find a table to allow the sub to sit directly on the floor.

Baskets work too

It's very likely to vibrate something in the vicinity that it's touching. Trial and error though.

Since true sub-woofers are omni-directional, you can just as easily hide it somewhere else in the room, like in a basket/etc.

Never thought of baskets

Never thought of baskets, it wouldn't be too confined for it? The sub measures 13hx13dx11L

The frequencies pumped out by a subwoofer are omnidirectional, and won't be affected much by being in the basket. Just as long as it's not hermetically sealed ;).

A good method IME is to use a relatively thin basket with no bottom, that simply covers the sub.

the style you like. Take a look at Overstock and also Living Spaces. With this new internet age, it's easy to go shopping without wasting gas. Good luck.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
