If you've got a hum issue between the AVR and Rythmik sub, the following might help address it: http://www.amazon.com/ART-DTI-Hum-El...2PQ0CV1VB2MYQQ
If you still have an issue with bass response, the low frequency room measurement is probably the next step to take.

It's not a question of right or wrong, better or worse, just your preference.

As long as you don't feel all music sounds recessed, it is most likely not a coloration.
If you don't crossover higher than 80hz, you may also try line-in and compare if that gives you a cleaner sound.
Appreciate all the feedback!
I think I'll stick with a wired connection. And for what it's worth, no hum issues I can detect with the 50-ft unshielded RCA cable I'm using as a stop-gap until I get a proper sub cable.
60 hz crossover for all speakers seems to be working well for now, but I'll play around a bit more, especially since my center channel is only rated to 60 hz and my surrounds to 61 hz.
Am using 1 port with 14 hz high damping. Haven't played around with sub settings yet (at least the ones available to me, since I'm using my AVR for bass management). Also using LFE from sub out, but I suppose line-in (I assume from preamp out) might be worth trying.
I might try to redo the sub crawl; at least with the organ music I was playing, I was hard pressed to detect dramatic differences while crawling around. Would I need to somehow delete the Audyssey calibration before undertaking a new sub crawl, i.e. would it compromise my ability to do the sub crawl? Microphone and room evaluation software is probably the next step. Probably won't get to that right away, but likely down the road.
Agreed I've got some great equipment at this point, albeit in a room that's a bit suboptimal, lots of reflective surfaces and towers are much closer to the wall than I'd like, but not to be helped given constraints. But it still sounds great. And it'll only get better as I tweak it!
