    This weekend I changed my room around and I put my setup across the room.(On the other wall across from where it was)
    And now it sounds kind of hollow sounding, I know putting it somewhere else changes the sound but I had no idea that much. When I put it in the garage it sounds really good. Does anybody else have that problem? I guess I will put it back this weekend, it sounds butter that way.:(

    yes, I believe that problem is fairly common. since the sound waves are so "long" its very easy to get annoying phasing (sounds out of tune, usually interacting with PA or guiarists heavy low end) and cancellation (thin) or compounding (boomy).

    Thats been my experience I try to stay close to my speakers so I hear them first and loudest (as far as bass tones are concerned).
