With solid concrete behind the drywall, the drywall should not have much impact on the bass response. Hence it should be just fine to do the subwoofer crawl now. Bass feels much stronger when you sit...

The room opens to the left at the back? How large is the space to the left? The subs will have to energize that space as well. Due to the opening on the left, I would put the front sub closer to the...

Sealed mode is primarily for music. Far less deep bass headroom. Not recommended for HT applications. If you like deep bass, 4" port open is the way to go.

If the Yamaha does not recognize there is a subwoofer, and is setting strange distances, maybe the receiver is not working right. Did you previously run Audyssey on the Onkyo?

With the 12.5 ft depth of your room, I would suggest placing the sub at the front between the front right speaker and the TV. If you don't want the sub to stick out too much, you can place it...

Placing the sub in the front left area (end table for the love seat?) should be a good alternative. What is it that you don't quite like about your current placement?

Not an issue. Many customers use it that way. We frequently recommend placing it sideways behind the listening position, woofer lined up directly behind the listener.

If you build a MDF enclosure around the HIW-1, you will have similar results as the HB-1, but will cost you considerably more since you will need to custom make those cabinets.
