    PSW-1200 orientation

    This question may be more generic to non-down firing subs, but I figured I'd post the model number just in case. Here's a link to the owner's manual for the PSW-1200: http://www.jbl.com/resources/Brands/...W1000%20om.pdf

    I've had a pair of JBL PSW-1200s for 15+ years and have always had them setup the same way...horizontal where the wording on the back is upright.

    Due to wanting to shift some stuff around, I was wondering two things:

    1. would it be OK to stand the sub up in a vertical orientation?
    2. would it be OK to turn it upside down and use it?

    the second question may seem odd...but the reason I ask it is I've considered flipping the sub over to get the magnet further away from a rear-projection TV.

    Thanks.

    In case anybody else searches for this...here's what I got back from JBL:

    Hi Greg,
    *
    You can certainly put the PSW1200 on its side, or even upside down.* The placement does not matter.* It will not negatively effect the sonic quality or performance.

    I hope this helps.

    I was more concerned with heat/vibration than I was sonic issues, so we'll see how it goes.
