2 subs, 1 per side, at the mid point on the long walls would get my vote.

Not possible on the sides, there is heating on one side and a door on the other. either I remove the xpa-5 from the mix and put a second sub there at the same time would need to change the underpowered amp or just upgrade the existing sub .... a friend suggested that I put the tower speakers on top of the 2 subs but don't think that is any good

perhaps if I made the vp180 shelf deeper and put the xpa-5 behind the vp180, it is triggered so no need to have it in sight, then I could 2 subs and have the external amp..

after taking a few measurements this isn't a good solution, at the end is it a bad thing to have just one sub?

I'd consider moving the towers away from the rear walls (sub behind amp?) and or a new stand for the VP180.
It looks like you've got an inch or 3 to work with (between the bottom of the screen and the 180).

It's not bad at all to have one sub if it kicks butt.
