But the graph with audessy isnt bad. If you want it flatter, I would try moving the servo sub since the single measurement of it shows the peak and null. And the null is probably enhanced from that peak
I believe the 2nd graph labeled Rew is with the PSA only, I forgot to tag it properly. The Servo is up front between the 2 speakers and center, you can problem see it in my avatar. It is about 4' off back wall, The PSA is behind my seating area about 3" off side wall facing out to my room with back firing at wall.

Yes, invert the phase (180) on one sub only. If you get an increase in SPL, you're on the right track.

This is my graph with phase turned all the way up on my servo sub which helped with the null but not the peak.This is with no Audyssey engaged. Both subs are on in this measure.

I think someone else mentioned changing the phase yersterda! That looks pretty good. At lease you brought in the missing bass, You just have a little extra at the peak. Does it sound boomy? If not, then its probably not a issue. Do you have any other controls on the back of your servo sub besides crossover, gain and phase?

The other thing is just trying moving that servo sub a little. Sometimes just 6 inches can make some difference. Or get a minidsp to take that peak out if nothing else works and you don't like it.

That's a VERY good start now. Everything is very flat after that humongous peak

I am very unsure what is causing it. Either way it's a good problem to have with strong extension like that. Much easier to cut a signal

Run with what you have now in audyssey and report back with a graph. See what it's does. Then you might be a candidate for a mjnidsp or the like

I copied this of your subs pdf file. So you can play with this and see what it does. http://www.paradigm.com/downloads/OM-576.pdf
BASS CONTOUR:

Adjusts the contour of the bass frequency response, from flat (0.0 dB),

which provides the most accurate bass for music, up to a +6.0 dB boost
at 60 Hz for more bass impact with movies in a home theater system.
This control can be used to tailor bass to best suit your personal
listening preferences

Next time for the fun of it run your left limit out to 10Hz. Im curious how far that extension extends out. Have you double checked that all your bass enhancements in your AVR are turned off?

If I touch the bass contour do I have to re - run Audyssey?

I read some people that has the Seaton Submersives do a trick is that they will run Audessy, with 1 of the 2 programs. Audessy will make an adjustment to that program, then they will load the other parameter program and not run aduessy to get a boost in the extension. Did I confuse you? lol
I would make notes in your measurments. Play with the setting without audessy, measure with notes. Then run adueessy and see if it makes it worst or better. Just take good notes so you can go back and look at your measurements and see which one looks the best. Its all trial and error.

You most certainly need to re-run Audyssey after that phase adjustment you did...it made a huge difference in your FR. Audyssey may even be able to pull down that huge 25hz peak now that it doesn't have to work so hard on the null.

EDIT: I'm assuming the last graph you posted is with Audyssey off, correct?

Alan, he was asking if he needed to re-run audessy after changing the bass contour on the sub, not the phase.
