Question speaker configuration when using REW to find sub levels?

Ok, so i'm not exactly a newbie when it comes to REW, I'm not an expert by any means but my background is in music production, which is a bit of a different application. For that I had full range 8" monitors and would simply test the left and the right directly out of the sound card- no big deal. Now that i'm setting up a home theater with many components working together I'm a bit confused on how to get an accurate measurement.

Firstly I can run it as 5 channel stereo and get a clean output of each speaker, OR, Dolby PLII which is the setting that actually gets used.

Secondly, I can run all speakers at once which in logic would mix with my sub to give me a realistic picture of the full spectrum of sound- but get combing and interference. OR, I can unplug each speaker and get a cleaner measurement, but the sub would be calibrated to match ONE speaker instead of the whole setup.

I have read quite a few guides but I haven't found clarity as to how to fine tune the system with your sub in the FULL mix. Is this just something you just have to 'earball'?
