A few ideas for you:
1. Equalize once - after everything is configured (Dr. Toole's recommendation). I know people on AVS occasionally advocate for pre-tweaking before or after Audyssey but Dr. Toole recommends not doing that.
2. If you have a calibrated microphone, take your existing sub and measure it in REW from each possible location in combination with each possible seat. Then, run those measurements in MSO and it will give you are very, very good idea of how things will work for you even before you purchase other subs. I've done this for my own theater to test the impact of adding a 3rd and/or 4th sub. MSO did a great job in helping me evaluate how those would work without having to purchase subs to try it out.
3. Definitely buy Dr. Toole's book - given what we all spend on audio, it's well worth the price. The section I previously referenced will clearly go over everything you are trying to do.
