I finally now have everything I need to set up REW. Before I EQ, I want to find the best sub location for the room.

1) Should I run measurments with the sub only/ mains turned off when seaking the best pre-eq location, or is it better to use the mains as well to see how different sub locations interact with the mains?

2) I have three main listening positions. I realize that I can only eq for one optimal spot, but when finding the best sub location, does REW have some type of average, if I take measurments from all three seats to determine the best sub location with the least compromises for each seat. Or, am I just better off going with the main seat, and not worry about the others?

Thanks

Sub only first.................

That's up to you. REW certainly has the Average feature, where it can average up to 8 positions and create a new response from this for you to apply filters, but it may not be what you want. Some people create a BFD filter program for the critical listening position and then another program for the average.
