According to the manual that I have just had a look at on the B&W website here you should connect your sub cable to the line level left input.

If you think that it didn't do much it could well be a setup problem. What kind of main speakers do you have and how have you set up the bass management in the amplifier - ie what crossover is set in the amp and are the speakers set as large or small

The Optimizer will do but it isn't that accurate and a set of test tones downloaded from the snapbug site in conjunction with an SPL meter will be better.

When my young 'un was born I made sure that we turned the volume up loud so that he got used to it and luckily have never had a problem as he now sleeps through anything.

Last Saturday we had saving Private Ryan at close to reference level and he didn't stir at all.
