subpressure is on a distinguished road

Done, thank you.

I can try over the weekend (I need to move the whole sofa to put it on the other side, there's other furniture there now).

I attached the floor plan. X is where I feel pressure, Y is where it's not aesthetically pleasing (but may work) and Z is where I believe your recommendation is.

I'm not sure... I was just watching regular primetime TV.

What is the sub out level on the receiver after Audyssey tuning? If it's too low (e.g. - 13 dB), then you want to lower the volume on the subwoofer and re-run Audyssey so the sub out on the receiver is around 0 dB, +/- 5 dB.
Yesterday it was at -3dB, today I re-tuned Audyssey (since I bumped the volume control while moving it from Y back to X) with your recommendations and it's at +5dB.



With the floor plan attached, is Z still the best position? Ideally I would like it at X, but even with both ports open and set to EQ2, I feel pressure again today (also regular TV at low volumes).
