1) Yes. It's just an axiom that a better sub will indeed be better. 2) Yes. Audyssey helps anytime there are Room EQ problems. And for what it's worth, Sub Position #2 angled into the corner should produce the most bass for that room.
What's your question?
Yes mcnarus, it's all a conspiracy. The fact that pretty much everyone disagrees with you is just a sign that the pod-people have gotten to them.

A couch in front of your speaker will most certainly affect your audio in a negative manner.
Unless you want to destroy the vinyl that you're playing, make sure that the table is set up properly (you're clearly not there right now). That means perfect alignment (get a good tool - this is hands-down the best I've ever used), perfect weight ("cranking it up" is a disastrous thing to do), perfect counter-weight, and the proper VTA. And before you start that, consider what cartridge you want to use as that's what affects the end sonic result that you'll get. The...
I was all ready to refer you over to Audioholics who usually does very good measurements and I thought that's where I had the article, but I can't re-find the link tonight.

It seems reasonable that Pioneer can almost make their published numbers or they'd be out of...

That would make the rears easy to place but the surrounds are going to be screwy no matter what you do. Honestly, I'd put the sofa's back-to-back with one facing the fireplace and one facing the TV on the 15' wall - offset a little bit with end tables filling in the overlaps. ...
