I have read some articles about the calibration process. i understand that seating position 1 is the priority and 5 is the lowest. As there is only the 2 of us, I was uncertain what to do with positions 3 to 5 so I went ether side of our chairs and then in the middle of the 2 chairs for position 5.
Is this the wrong thing to do? Am I best to just alternate between the 2 chairs so positions 1,3,5 will be the same and 2,4 will be the same? Will this confuse the calibration if I am repeating positions?
Also, I have the subwoffer agaist the back wall but have a chair infront of the subwoffer. Is this a bad idea to have a chair infront of the subwoffer?
Thanks in advance.

if positions are two close, it normally detects this and asks for a new position. Really the idea is to pick 5 positions around the room, so that it doesn't creat a "sweet spot" where it sounds best ( it should sound great no matter where in the room you are). So depending on location I may try the following - In a normal 5 seater couch room I would choose three seated positions (yes for logic's sake the two you and your partner sit would be one and two of them). I would then choose maybe the kitchen as I listen to music when I cook, the dining table to listen to background music. Maybe kids sit on the floor while watching. If you just watch TV/movies from the couch choose 5 positions around the couches (they just need to be at least 1m away from each other)
Thanks Morlock. The room does incorporate the kitchen so had not thought of using this as a point. The room is around 11m long but we sit around 5.5m from the tv and all points were at this point. If I use a point around the kitchen, will this "throw" the sound further into the room and then give a better listening point at the 5.5m?
