    I don't know how true this is, but somebody said to me......

    if the sub is facing the same way as your speakers then set phase to 0.
    If sub is facing towards the main speakers then set phase to 180.

    If the phase is a rotary control then set the phase setting to the same degree as the sub is angled from your main speekers.

    Mark, what you have read was posted by myself. It is a rough starting point but not to be adhered to. Set the phase to the position suggested and then play about with settings either side of this.
