Hi,

First, don't expect miracles from an Home Theater in a Box. The speakers are generally very cheap.

Sub placement is critical. You have to experiment a bit to find the best spot in your room. Play some bass heavy music/movies scenes and move it around the room. Once you find a spot that sounds good, you need to properly calibrate. Start by running Audyssey. Then go into the menus and make sure no speakers are set to FULL.

If the receiver has a crossover, use it instead of on the sub. Turn the crossover on the sub as high as it will go, probably 150 - 200 hz. Depending on your speakers you will probably set the receiver crossover to 120 hz if they are satellite speakers.
