I'm pretty sure with some tweaking that would get better. But if I were to move the seating forward the room would look kind of odd. So the age old question of form vs. function arises.

On another note now that the subs are repositioned I have to say the room sounds very much better. I had definitely been losing out on some very important LFE with the old positioning. I still need to get the minidsp to tweak some things but already things are much improved. There's still work to do but as Basshead said a few days ago, with REW I'm no longer wondering "what if"?

Thanks once again to one and all who helped me out.
IME, and this is not SOP, but I've found that you can "move" the sweet spot a bit if you mess with the phase on your rear sub(s). Your subs will be slightly out-of-phase, but it sometimes works. Give it a shot!

OK, just got off the phone with R+L Carriers.

The reason my tracking ended in Minneapolis is because the T-18s got handed off to a "secondary carrier" who apparently is "unmanifested"....anyways, the T-18s arrived in my city this morning!!

They said they should be calling me in a couple hours to schedule delivery. YEAH!

Leave your sofa where it is and sit in the floor in front of the sofa, putting your ears in the sweet spot!

Just received in my dual XS30SE's yesterday and just wow....They were fantastic sounding!! Once I got them dialed in with my system I was very impressed with how tight, controlled, and deep the bass was. I had never heard or owned sealed subs before, only ported. In my current theater room of 3000 Sq ft these shook the walls! Very impressed and very happy! Tom answered at least twenty of my questions prior to purchase and also afterwards. Very impressed with customer service and the overall experience. Looking forward to years of use out of these!!!

Awesome, I just set up a return for my XV15SE so I can save a little and get an XS30SE for my 2,000 cubic foot room.
