There are many possible combinations of sub gain (volume) and AVR settings. Presumably, there is some window that maximizes performance with lots of headroom so there's little risk of clipping. What are the rules of thumb? The advice here seems to be to shoot for Audyssey settings between -3 and -6 dB, but should that be before turning the sub up to run it a bit hot or afterwards?
Currently, I have my sub gain set at a notch below midnight, Audyssey calibrated my sub at -5 dB, and I'm running it a bit hot by moving it to -1 dB. If I move the sub gain up a notch, if I recall correctly Audyssey comes out closer to -10 or -11 dB, and then I'd compensate to -6 or -7 dB. Is the latter preferable or am I in a sweet spot with the former?
