Placement of subwoofers
I have responded to discussions about placement and performance of subs several times before this one. The room and surroundings are paramount in using them. They can add so much to the listening experience. Things get so complicated when it comes... 
Why do so many people have problems with bass?
I don't think the OP has any REAL intentions  about the improvement of his current system or maybe is curious?. This post is obviously a post to invite a FLOOD of responses to address the issue "with bass". If you really want to find about "bass"... 
Advice to Newbies
hilde45 offers the correct response. I think that treating a sound room before the actual system is placed there is a reverse way to go. Different systems (especially speakers) have characteristics of their own. And how they interact with the room... 
Help…looking to buy turntable
   A lot of good advice given here. Aside from good recommendations from others, I would look into local dealers who sell audio but have a strong repair staff. Many of these local dealers have knowledgeable people who can also order from companies...

Better sound on rainy days?
Didn't hear what other signals may be coming to the OP's location other than FM .  There probably are many opinions about this crazy idea. But, many years ago I experienced a similar observance. Back then my primary sources were vinyl, cassette, ... 
MM phono preamp upgrade for $1000?
Lots of good choices presented here. Here's another...........If you don't mind lurking into the used market $1000 can buy a pretty decent unit in a lot of brands. You may want to check out Graham Slee (Reflex line). If you find one that interests...

Speaking of Ry Cooder.....From many years ago, check out his work with Gordon Lightfoot in his version of Me and Bobby Magee.    
For all you Bose 901 Haters!
   Yeah, those were the days. People would cut holes in their car's panels, put in a few speakers, and perhaps an 8 track and the sound was so much better than the car radio. Subs in the trunk weren't even a thought or an option.    Bose...I went... 
Placement of Single Subwoofer Affecting Sound of Main Speakers
The previously mentioned "crawl" method does have some credibility. Also the "swarm" setup may be the optimum option for using subs but since you are limited to only using a single sub that option is out. Sub integration into any system/setup is ...

Another possibility.....Maybe that's not a diaper Gort is wearing. I once saw someone wearing his underwear outside of his pants during spring break in Ft. Lauderdale. Gort certainly had the means to stop off there before going on to Washington. D...

Can recommend some non-fatigue SMALL bookshelf for near-field listening?
   I have had  good experience with NAD  amps used with PSB speakers. Very good combination. They once were, or maybe still are, sister companies. I used the PSB Imagine B speakers with a NAD C375BEE integrated. Not sure how your combo would work ... 
HELP - Subwoofer placement
That's the "crawl" method. Some have had good results with that.    
HELP - Subwoofer placement
The use and placement of a sub(s) has to be one of the most discussed topics in this forum. Placement, room acoustics, and a lot of other factors come into play. The brand and model of the sub have some importance but not as much as other things. ...
