Hello there,

I would like to ask for some help. I have a setup as shown in the attached image.
Here are some specs:

Fronts en surrounds: Wharfedale Diamond 220

Center: Wharfedale Diamond 220C

Sub: Yamaha YST-SW012

The problem I have is with the subwoofer. I have run Audyssey but I find it quite boomy and overbearing. De rest of the speakers are fine.
After recommendations from others I have set all speakers to small (Audyssey sets fronts to large) and the crossover to 80 HZ. I immediately noticed much more coherence in the soundfield so that is a good thing.
Just the subwoofer (low end) does not sound right. As I sad, it sounds boomy and overbearing. I tried hours and hours changing the crossover to 60, playing with subwoofer level etc.. So I think it has to do with placement. I tried putting it in front of the center speaker (underneath). This lead to more punchy bass, but it sounded somewhat pressuring. My room seems cursed!
I use my setup for music and movies equally. I am tired of changing and trying settings. I just want to enjoy my large collection of CD's and Bluray's. :)
Does somebody have some tips?

Thanks in advance!

Sorry, but you're not going to get anything resembling quality bass from an that Yamaha "subwoofer" (shouldn't even be called that, IMO).

Can you afford $300 for a (much) better sub? If so, take a look at the Emotiva BasX 10. This will be on a whole different level and a significant step up from that Yamaha.
