The most effective position for the AVAA is in a location where the walls contribute most to the room modes that are disturbing in the listening position. In practice it is very easy to position the AVAA effectively after a few comparative trials.

The starting position is in corners behind the source speakers as this is the most effective position in a majority of cases. However, depending on the structure of the room boundaries and listening position, other AVAA locations might turn out to be more effective. Try positioning them in different corner or against walls and evaluate effectiveness.

In practice it is quick and easy finding the best location by following the basic rules:

  • AVAAs positioned in corners are more effective
  • AVAAs located against rigid walls are more effective

Bear in mind that the AVAA is designed to absorb long wavelengths and therefore there is little very little to gain by positioning the AVAA with great precision.
