Sad face :-(
Sounds like your sub is picking up some room gain. If located in a corner that can cause it. Try moving it out from any walls if possible. But your best bet is to do a sub crawl and find the best location. Try several locations and pick the best sounding location or the best based on your aesthetic preferences.
Where we want to put them does not always sound the best.
