Question about Acoustic Research ARS108 Speaker
The sound is probably being generated by the amp; which is being overdriven.
Placing the sub at the wall/floor junction will increase bass output by 6 db. if the sub is simply a sealed box, it can also flatten the response if the driver is pointed sideways.
If it's a band pass box (ported), this may not work as well.

Your subwoofer is not capable of playing as loud as you want it to. That sound is the woofer reaching its limit. If you have any bass tone setting on your receiver set them to flat. If there are any other bass settings i.e contour, loudness boost etc turn them off. You can also try putting the woofer into a corner. This will increase the output. Closer to you would also be louder. Otherwise you need a sub with more output. Don't let the power rating fool you when you get a new one.
