Accepted answer
subplot(1,3,1); imshow(rand(300)); mt(1) = title('TEST1');
subplot(1,3,2); imshow(rand(300)); mt(2) = title('TEST2');
subplot(1,3,3); imshow(rand(300)); mt(3) = title('TEST3');
set(mt,'Position',[150 300],'VerticalAlignment','top','Color',[1 0 0])

something like that?

Create a TEXT object in the current axes and set it outside the plot area:

text(0.5 -0.1, 'Sub title', 'Units', 'normalized')

Does this work? I cannot test it currently.

What about xlabel?

Or create an invisible axes in the background:

FullAxesH = axes('Units', 'normalized', 'Position', [0,0,1,1], ...
                 'Visible', 'off');

Now get the position of each subplot:

H = subplot(1,3,1);
Pos = get(H, 'Position');

and use this to define the position of the TEXT.
