Welcome Walt

Try to get the sub so the distance to the walls aren't the same.

Have you insulated above the drop ceiling? If not, that's an inexpensive way to get good broadband bass control.

The front wall should be completely dead and I'd add some reflection panels on the side walls.

Broadband bass control is a key element of proper room acoustics, dialog clarity, and bass punch and extension. It simply means that we're addressing the entire subwoofer range through lower midrange in terms of decay time.

Definitely insulate above the drop ceiling at least 6" thick. More is slightly better. Do at least 2' all around the room perimeter and over the seating positions.

Up in the ceiling above a drop, just plain fluffy insulation is fine. Use at least r-19. I personally prefer R-30
