Help planning new system

As far as home audio is concerned Iím starting from scratch, and as you can see from the attached pic I donít have a good layout for acoustics. Thereís also no practical way to wire surround speakers so Iíve decided to go with the Hybrid 15 3.1 system. If I had to guess Iíd say it will be used for 50/50 movies/music.

From the layout is there any guess as to which spot to locate the sub? Iím a newbie when it comes to this stuff, and Iíve been reading about sub crawl which I will take a shot at but wanted to see if there are any suggestions. At what point in my setup do I do the sub crawl? After I have already setup the L/C/R speakers?
Iíll also need to get a receiver and could use some advice, as far as what to look out for and any quirks with particular brands, etc. Something in the $200-300 range.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

You can do the sub crawl at any point in setting your system up, that won't make a difference. If you can, some spots I would try are end table spots next to the arms of the couches. Behind the couches might be good too. If there is room behind the TV, you might try that space as well.

Thanks for the advice. Ive already convonced the wife that this will be considered my xmas present, and she's going along with it. She has no idea how big the vtf-15h is though, I left that part out.

Reminds me of when my brother-in-law and I carried mine in. The wife's jaw hit the floor and then she just shook her head like I was nutz.
