The second best way to find a good position is to place the sub where you will be sitting, and then crawl around the room to see where it sounds good, then put the sub there.
^^^Agreed, wholeheartedly. But getting it away from the middle of the room is the best place to start.

I spent HOURS moving my sub around using crazy angles, moving it an inch here and there... only to find it sounded best right at my feet firing straight ahead (defying all logic I had learned in my years of audio)

Alright I moved the sub to the other side and it definitely sounds a lot better. All I need to do now is move the glass cabinet on the wall behind it

Next problem ... woke up yesterday and my left monitor (but not the right) now makes this never-ending hissssssss like it's turned up too loud. Only thing that stopped it was turning the speaker volume way down but then that screws with the perfect balance of the speakers and sub settings that took so long to configure exactly right. I assumed it was just something wrong with the power source (since it's never done this before, and the only changes to the setup were new location, and I didn't bring my UPS battery backup with me), although I also tried running just the speakers through a PureAV PF30 and it didn't help AT ALL. Any thoughts?
