A refresher article perhaps SoS?
I think that'd be a really interesting (and informative) experiment actually, trying out different tops with/without a sub and then with two, perhaps even dare for the 'centre' speaker often found in surround but apply it to pop?
If I were to do it (...if money were no object) it'd be interesting to try 2.0, 2.1, 2.2 then 3.0 3.1 3.2 and 3.3
Presumably having stereo subs would free panning choice for the low end entirely! Although the centre monitors could be overkill. In pop anyway!
Heh! I was not thinking along quite such grandiose lines Edd! Just a page maybe on the pro and cons of subs in "small" rooms and some guidance re positioning.
Still! A nice big article comparing the same system in 3say, different "domestic" spaces would be very informative I would guess.
The room sizes I would suggest: Sub 900cu ft* 1200-1500cuft and ~2500+ for those lucky B's with a nice old high ceilinged Victorian property?
If the results came out to suggest that subs can never give good results in the average projjy bedroom, (~1000cuft?) this might prove unpopular with some advertizers? And I suspect this might be the case!
Be a lot of work, on a par I would say with the excellent '07guitar mic'athon.
