Question about the 15H placement

I am going to be buying one of these as soon as my student loan check comes. I could put it where I have my existing sub (Polk PSW10 don't laugh) right next to my couch. But I hate having the sub cable running across my room. Does the sub have to be a certain amount of feet away from a wall. If I were to put it next to my tv it would back up against a gas fireplace. Would that be a terrible idea. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Subwoofers don't need stand-off distances, they only need a bit of free room for their ports and driver. As long as the ports and driver are not blocked, it ought to be fine. Moving it away from the wall can change the sound, maybe for the better, maybe for the worse, you would have to experiment to see how it sounds to you. There are wireless subwoofer adapters you can buy, but they aren't too cheap, they basically start at $100 and up. Klipsch has one, as does Yamaha, Outlaw, Deftech, and others.

Hi solat152,

If you are planning to place the VTF-15H near a wall you will need to leave clearance between the ports/woofer to any surface it fires into (3-4 inches), as well as physical clearance for the controls on the back.
