subpressure is on a distinguished road

Position Z is nearly perfect. I feel it a little bit in my other ear now, I may move it another foot or two and it should be fine.

I did have another question: should I set the crossover in the sub or in my receiver? The receiver sets it to 120Hz after Audessey.

I tried changing it to 80Hz in the receiver, and when I flip the switch from Out to In (on the sub) and set it to 80Hz, there is a big sound difference.

What's the correct crossover and where should I set it?

Thank you Dr. Hsu for your help and time.

I believe I am familiar with the "pressure" you are describing. I too have my sub at the end of my couch. But I also get a similar feeling listening to my car radio after a while. I love listening to music, and just hearing in general, so I went as far as going to an Audiologist for an examination. I checked out fine, but still have that odd feeling, so not sure what to tell you. When I have the option, I just try to sit at least 4ft from my Sub, which ends up being about center of the couch. I understand how worrisome it can be feeling something affecting your hearing, especially if your a lover of music... and since you are here, I know you are!
I think it may just be me... my wife sat next to the sub, and she said it's perfectly fine for her (where I'm sitting about 5-6 feet away from the sub now, and I still feel a little bit of pressure in my other ear now...)
