    Sub frequencies are Omnidirectional , meaning , it radiates all around , so where ever you put it , you're gonna hear it anyways.

    Unless you get three subs and do a Cardioid sub pattern .....

    Being omni-directional you have to pay a lot of attention to placement. Put them in the wrong spot relative to a wall and you'll get reflection cancellations. Split them apart and they'll cancel each other. Split them apart placed too far from a wall and you'll get cancellations from both sources. There is a science to sub placement, and very few sub users are aware of it. The fact that sub manufacturers don't include proper placement instructions in their manuals doesn't help. Even worse, they put sockets in them for pole mounting the mains, and below the mains is usually the worst possible sub placement. :rollno:
    OP, do your homework.
  5. Word.

    NOTE: Unfortunately sometimes due to lack of space Subs can’t always be placed center. ;)

    Way cool. :cool:
  6. Thanks again for everyone's advice. I have alot of research to do still. We don't even have a PA of our own yet. We've been renting for a while now when we really needed one but I think buying one will happen in the near future.

    yorkville makes nice powered subs that can be patched into basic bar band PAs with minimal fuss, van space or $$. one LS800P will bring a lot of boom.

    ultimately though, the subs need to be properly integrated into a proper PA to really do the job right.

    Have you thought about adding a second UL2-115? I've just added another to my setup, and the sound difference is AMAZING! I can't wait to gig this setup. It really gives a lot more flexibility to the DEEP end.

    Listen to this, man. You can get far more effective, and booty shakin' bass placing a single sub in the right spot than you can get placing more, or more expensive, subs in the wrong spot.
