+1 to this! ^^^
Also, if you're using an AVR with room correction software (Audyssey, YPAO, AccuEQ, etc.), you want a post calibration sub trim (AVR) of about -10db. That way you have room to bump it up a few dbs, or lower it (who does this??
) if so desired.
Keep in mind that if you run the room correction and the sub trim is somewhere around, say -5db, raise your sub's gain and re-run calibration until you reach the desired -10db range. If it's -12db (or more depending on what AVR you own), then lower the gain until you hit the -10db range.
Placement of your sub is also crucial, so I would also suggest that you Google "Sub Crawl". This will help you find the best location for your sub to help eliminate nulls that might occur at your MLP (Main Listening Position).
I know this might sound like alot of work, but this is what it will take to achieve the best results.
Hope this helps,
