Thanks to all those out there for your advise.

Another suggestion I just though of: just calibrate everything like I did and................JUST CRANK IT UP!!! biggrin.gif:D:D

If you like Jazz , Pop or R&B I can recommend some CD's that I use to get it to my liking. I like mine to sound natural as possible with music and some movies. Enjoy!!!

-10 on a yamaha avr means the sub gain is too high and YPAO is not able to lower the sub volume enough to level match it with your main speakers.

If ypao can not level match it will throw a error code which means out of range. All -10db means is the gain on the amp was set 10db hot so ypao pulled 10db in avr sub trim to achieve a 75db calibration.

You are never going to damage the sub because it has a aggressive limiter to protect it. That being said as mentioned previously I would decrease the amp gain until audyssey or whatever correction software the avr has sets the avr sub trim -6(any higher and the auto on feature of the sub may not work correctly at lower volumes). This will give you 6db of adjustment without going past 0 in the sub trim. The reason being having a +8 sub trim setting is most likely clipping the signal to sub at higher volumes.

He might have gotten lucky and landed on exactly -10, but if  not, he may have his speakers set with + trim in the AVR as well.  I would imagine this would possibly introduce clipping just as it would for the sub?  I try not to completely max out the trim adjustment.

I always assume everyone uses audyssey. biggrin.gif So I say run the mic and then adjust to your liking with the preffered Bass CD.

Yea that is a good point!! Part of the reason why I think -6 is about the perfect setup from my experience.
