Wrong. The sub will choose it's own spot...not you. ;)

That is, if you want to get the most from your new subwoofer...I would assume you do from your OP.

I meant; did you do a sub crawl, distance tweak, etc.

You should not run a speaker that was designed to be horizontal vertically, and vice versa.

That being said, a vertical speaker is best for the CC (if it's designed as a vertical speaker ;) ).

Maybe don't listen in Pure Direct....??? Personally, I prefer Stereo because you get the sub(s), but to each their own. :)

It's the dreaded 60hz ground-loop hum.

With nothing running through your system, crank up the volume. Does it hum??

Without frequency response measurements, it's hard to say....but more treatments should NOT make the HF more shrill, that's for sure.

FYI - you should optimize the placement of both subs (using REW) with Audyssey OFF. After you have the best response you can get, then you run Audyssey.

Define "hard"? ;)

Before the dual T-18s I had quad XS15s....now that was hard...and ultimately an utter failure in my room, hence the dual T-18s. :)

Procedure should be like so:

No, there are many AVRs that support front height channels...unfortunately, yours isn't one of them. :(
