Garrett,

Since you have a long row of windows on the long wall behind you, much of the bass energy hitting the rear wall is going outside and not causing interference with the direct sound. This is a good thing, as long as the neighbors don't mind. If that rear wall was very solid you probably wouldn't be able to stand the bass reflections. A very close, solid back wall gives the low frequencies a ghostlike, ethereal quality that is extremely hard to judge.



Aha!  That explains a lot... The wall behind me is indeed at least 80% windows.   The rest is 1" thick pine paneling and exterior brick...

Thanks for the insight.
