Thanks basshead. I did precisely that. Set the room setting to Large and than reran MCACC. Running the full blown MCACC for the reverb, pro eq, etc., takes some time. My wife was patient as I messed with some things knowing Live Free or Die Hard and Aliens was on deck to test the bass.
Real world in my home means the subwoofer is not ideally located nor is my home theater setup in the most bass friendly room. It is what it is. I'm not able to hang bass traps, rearrange furniture, etc., just for subwoofer response.
Trying to understand the options on the SW, what I see in MCACC, dialing adjustments in, is not as easy as it seems, at least to me, with the way terms are named, the variables that MCACC tossing in, etc.
There's also the missing piece regarding "when you hear this...you need to change that this way..." information.
I am trying to read through the thread on using MCACC step by step. Which is great information. So far I haven't come across what I'm looking for.
"That grenade explosion was a bit subdued. You need to change MCACC to the Time Projection of 80ms and set the room size to medium on the SW and re-run MCACC...." kind of direction.
There is an endless amount of information about one piece of the picture. There, at least in my humble opinion, is almost no information that addresses the dynamic interplay, or variables, of these automatic calibration algorithms and SW settings with DSP stuff being built in.
The good news is alien blowing up grenades, Ripley's "Get away from her bitch" scene and Sgt. McClane's semi-truck getting blown to bits by a F35 sounded amazing. With our SVS PB12-SVS it sounded good. With the S1500 our couch vibrated. Was really enjoyable.
