My FV18s sound so good in my system I have decided against making any further changes based on REW for the time being. I know that using REW to refine the initial Sub settings that YPAO applied would probably improve the sound somewhat. Nevertheless, notwithstanding the possible improvement an REW tweak might provide, I am going to continue to enjoy what I've got for the moment. I have a bunch of movies with demonstration quality LFE to watch and don't want to get diverted until I've had a chance to enjoy the FV18s pounding out that low frequency goodness.
Despite the foregoing, I have discovered a great place to put my UMIK-1 when I do take on REW again. The large recliner that I have at my MLP has a broad horizontal surface on top if its back. If I place the mic there, on its little tripod, the head of the mic will only be about an inch from where my head is when I'm watching TV or a movie. There's a bonus too. That location means the mic won't rest on or even to be very close to any reflective surfaces.
