No, you don't need a 12v trigger. The amp will sense the signal voltage on the input coming from your receiver or SSP. When there is no signal for a set amount of time, the amp will turn off until it detects signal again.

Any thoughts on speaker/sub placement or orientation?

I currently have an entry level sony receiver that does not let me customize the EQ curve. I do have an SPL meter at my disposal and am wondering how people on here would implement a house curve. After running EQ, would you raise the volume knob on the back of the Caps, bump up db via the receiver or something else?
Only way to get them placed properly for good sound quality is to measure. You might get lucky and have a good result with them placed for aesthetics on the front stage, but very likely not.

To put in a house curve, one option would be to put a miniDSP in the chain. You can boost the low end below 40 Hz a couple of different ways. This will have the benefit of increasing impact on movies without muddying things up with music/upper bass.
