I had the volume levels set to -3db on my sledge amp for my Ultra and my avr was set to -3 aswell.And i can say that subwoofer was PUMPING SOME SOUND'S.So i would not worry about how hard you play it worry about who is hearing it lmao.None the less i played my volume level on my receiver at -10 reference sound.IT WAS MIND BLOWING.I MISS MY ULTRA!!!!!

To calibrate, should I use the sledge amp's built in P-EQ based on my readings first, or just let MultEQ XT handle it?

If i were you i would buy a dual pb12+ you will still have more output than the ultra and also the benefit of duals...if i had a place i would have a dual pb12+...but now i have dual sb13 ultras (i had dual sb12 before) which are still pretty good and can hammer very well if i want them to but when i had one sb13ultra i thought i would never buy another ultra as one was enough and it was pricey here in Europe...but you know that when you go dual you can never look back at one i just wanted to tell you that pretty soon you will buy another ultra if you get one now ...go for dual pb12+ you will be more than happy... i am done for upgrading subs for a very long time
