Working on tuning my game room setup to improve acoustics, the first thing I'm looking at is seating position. The current seating is a sectional that is in the dead center of the room both length and width wise. From a practical perspective this is the most convenient spot for free walking space throughout the room, but from everything I'm reading it's about the worst possible position for dead zones, especially for bass. To be fair, the room is not a perfect square, it's 19' wide by 23' long but with a 6'x7' notch in the back corner where a staircase is outside the room. Not sure if that changes the need to get the seats away from lengthwise center. Anyway, I probably have wiggle room to push it about 1.5' back or 2' forward if that'll make a difference. Question is, all other things being equal, what are the considerations for being closer to the front in a home theater setup or closer to the back? In both cases it's still going to be a good 10' away from the wall. Off the top of my head it felt like if I'm closer to front I get advantages of needing a smaller screen and less power to the speakers since I'm closer to them. But closer to back improves off-axis viewing for people on ends of the sectional and gives a roomier feel just because there's more open space in the room. Any other considerations, acoustical or otherwise?
