Thanks for the info. I have a Sony STRDH550 AVR, so it has a calibration program.

Right now the F12 is at 4/10 on the volume knob and -2 dB on the receiver and sounds great. I read somewhere in the thread its always good to have the sub in the negative dBs on the AVR, so I turned the gain on the sub up and kept calibrating until the AVR put it at -2.

Due to WAF, the sub crawl wont do me much good

I've tried it in several locations around the entertainment system, and in the corner on the right of the system seems to work best.

I had mine set at about 3/10 and got 0 dB on the AVR, so you're right smack where you need to be. As for WAF, buy a doily and a statue, then the sub can go anywhere.

And if the statues falls and breaks, it died a hero.
