|Should a subs volume be turned up on the sub itself and not as much on the receiver...or should the volume be a bit down and be set to a higher output from the receiver?|
Is one of these more desireable than the other?

It's best to run the sub's input high and the receiver's sub output low. This cuts down on possible distortion introduced by the receiver's output stage.

That's a little confusing. The sub's input IS the receiver's sub output, isn't it?
Did you mean that he should keep the receiver output low (minimizing distortion), and use the volume control (or sub OUTPUT) to control the sub volume level? That would make sense to me, although it would put more strain on the sub amp.
