What is the correct way to work out speaker distance settings?

The one which is used by the ADA suite, this is where the furthest speaker is used as reference, then every speaker is subtracted from this, or where you simply measure out from the sweet spot to every speaker.

The ADA way seems to make more sense when you think about it, so Is there a right way or wrong way?

No real difference. Once you are delaying speakers, you're delaying speakers. As long as the delay is transparent (and I'v'e never experienced anything that suggests otherwise) whether you delay all the speakers or all but one of the speakers is ultimately irrelevant, as long as the delays are correct for the main listening position . . .
