Sub-woofer placement Tags: TV Last response: February 1, 2012 4:03 AM in Other Consumer Electronics Share anbelmon January 30, 2012 3:08:45 AM Hello, Can the subwoofer be placed behind the TV or above the TV? Don't want it to be seen so I have space behind and above TV. Could it damage the TV in these places?
