I just have a single sub - V3601 (re-attaching room layout)

The way I look at it is our first priority is to just focus on finding the prime (one or two) placements where the sub has the best response. Then focus on making one of those locations work for you in regards to aesthetics. Sometimes you have to reconsider the layout of the whole room.
I'm fine with moving the sub around and doing some measurements. Whether my wife will agree to changing the bedroom around is another thing lol. I feel fortunate she allowed the MT110s and V3601 in the room to begin with! I have a few questions for your/others that can answer them:
(1) Should I measure as I'll be running my system? I have my sub gain up (noon-ish, up from 9, unknown dB increase) and AVR trim-level boosted 4.5 dB post-Audyssey, room-size on medium. Would it be better to re-run Audyssey, let it set the AVR trim to -11 dB or so and take measurements that way?
(2) Audyssey on or off? Unless I did something wrong it didn't seem to affect the measurements when I turned it off.
(3) The boom mic is supposed to be on the ground. The only way for me to accomplish this is to push the bed out of the way, which isn't really how the room will be when I'm listening. It seems to me the large wooden bed in an incorrect position could affect the measurements. I think removing the mattress and box springs makes the most sense for measurements and will reflect the layout of my furniture most correctly. Agreed?
(4) REW says you want clean line of sight to the mic from the sub. Yesterday I moved my nightstand out of the way to achieve this, but again, during actual listening the nightstand is in the way. Keep furniture as is?

I don't have either of those on. I measured with and without Audyssey on and it didn't seem to make a difference.
