Hi browndk26, I would start in the right front corner. This will help maximize the conservative output of the sony sub. (If that's still what your using). If it's too tight in the corner, it may sound "boomy", and "one note"-ish. This is where moving closer, and farther from boundaries becomes important, as experimentation will allow you to know for sure. However, to be frank, many htib subs will sound that way no matter what. Not a knock, just speaking to their design compromises. Room looks nice!

No. In the previous setup the couch along the wall was opposite where it is now. And there was a lot of open space on either side of the setup. In the photo below, the couch along the wall was by the support post and the TV was where the bookshelf is. The sub was next to the post. All that space around it may have prevented localization.
Thats probably true. I think boundary gain is worth 6db per.(generally speaking) How was tactile response there? Have you started experimenting yet?

Nice. I'm curious to see his it goes. I'd leave the levels. I've used db apps, but I think if it really counts I'd trust audyssey first. Even real db meters can waver from one to another, but they are at least made to measure the lower octaves. More than a phone mic especially. If you were using a db meter I may say otherwise. I think a 10 db discrepancy probably shows the roll off of the phones mic. If I'm not giving enough credit to db apps, I'm happy to learn.
