When you say this is your "client", I'm assuming (maybe incorrectly) that you are a custom installer...??

If so, shame on you - RTFM. :)

That's good to hear Jeff!

You got your sub in the front corner right? Crossed at 80hz? You shouldn't be getting any localization at all no matter what the sub trim (well, within reason).

Yeah...you shouldn't have hot air blowing on your sub.

Also, how large is this register and how close is your sub to it? You may be losing bass into it if it's a big enough hole.
