8250 and subwoofer

Hello all,
i intend to add a subwoofer (7260 most probably) to my 8250s (as soon as GLM 2.0 is available for the Mac :o) ).
My question refers to the placement of the subwoofer. Does it make sense to put it close to the listening position? I know that the usual recommendation is off-center between the front speakers, but what's the problem with positioning it close to the listener? Does this excite modes which otherwise would remain "calm", i.e. non-problematic ?
Thanks for any feedback!

Hi,

There is some good but slightly controversial information on the subject: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/subwoofe ... ponse.html

Another more scientific approach to the subject of subwoofer placement inside a room: http://www.harman.com/EN-US/OurCompany/ ... omsPt3.pdf

Thanks for these links. Very interesting.
As expected there is obviously no standard solution. So i´ll have to try and see which position suits my room best.
