Every room is different so you need to do what sounds best for your room. The easiest way to determine which location is best is by doing a sub crawl. Basically you place the sub in your main listening position (yes, lift it up into your couch or chair) and play some bass heavy music or test tones. While the music is playing get on your hands and knees and crawl around the room paying attention to where the bass sounds best. Once you determine this location place your sub there and enjoy your bass! Obviously things like walkways and doorways as well as the ever important WAF may limit where you can put it so place it where it makes the most sense. Here is a video going over the process

Look much better, the first one look like it was draw by a 8 years old
For the locations, look at the post from @usc1995 on post number 2. A good place to start.

The sub crawl suggestion is a good idea, the only thing I'll add is that we don't know anything about your speakers. If they are small and don't play deep, you might want to use higher crossovers, and I would lean towards having the subs up front (by the TV) if that was the case.

100 hz is about the upper limit before you start to run into localization issues, e.g. you may start to have male voices reproduced in part by the subs. So if you have a sub next to you or behind you, it might sound like that dialog is coming from there instead of the screen. Some people are more sensitive to that than others, and the degree to which it happens can vary by content. So experimentation is in order, but in general you can better get away with higher crossovers when you have your subs up front, preferably flanking the screen.
