    I think you just have to measure how far the subwoofer is from your listening position.:)

    You set it up the same as the other speakers. Measure the distance and then spend endless hours tweaking your system. ;)

    Because the frequencies coming from your sub are so large(around 60 a second as opposed to as high has you can hear which is about 19000 a second) unless you room is massive it dont matter also bass frequencies dont bounce off anything unlike higher frequencies so it also doesnt matter were you put it you wont notice if you put it behind you or in the left corner as long as you dont cover the port.
