Well installed it in the fireplace. Its just the most convenient place for placement right now and I think I've figure out how to get it to work.
This model has a directional subwoofer regardless of position so its best if you can place it close to the tv as possible, directly behind I guess is optimal. I had to set the bass to -7 on the bar because yes the brick fireplace cove "enhances" the bass, but even if it doesn't you sort of have to use a negative bass setting to minimize the issue of mens voices being noticeable from subwoofer.
All in all after the tweaking the sound is ok for its purpose which was to enhance tv sound, I have other speakers for movies through the htpc and stuff. Basically this model out of the box has a stupid default setting which is to emphasis bass at the cost of sound quality, I guess its like store mode for TV's.

Hah, well its a 50" plasma, I loath the thought of lifting it off the wall again;)
