yes best sound is usually having the sub pointed at the wall or edge of the desk, causes it to reverb hehe. I have my 8 in sub pointed at me for one reason and one reason alone: I live in an apartment. some of my neighbors may not appreciate their walls reverbating. also, side point i almost forgot about, my wife doesnt like the noise level of my games, and that would just make it worse hehe so i try not to make the entire apartment shake.
