I don't like it. You're asking for trouble. You're cutting 25-63hz and boosting 20hz, 80-100hz to compensate for the null. I think the overall output is low b/c of all the cuts and you'll end up raising master volume to calibrate to 75db for all channels. Problem is, when the movie gets loud, the boosted regions will distort heavy. You will bottom out.
Try The Haunting DTS (chapter 10) and Day After Tomorrow (early in movie when Gyllenhall on plane to NYC, thunder crashes)
I can't say if the master volume of 40 is too high or not (i think it is), because the gain on the back of your sub maybe low. Here's my set up: Processor sub volume is -10db, SMS-1 volume is 16, PC-Ultra just under the third dash for gain, Paradigm Servo 15 is at 1/4 gain.
Turn off the xover in the sub and in your receiver. Unplug your main speakers. Set it back for 20hz tune and show me the uncorrected plot and I'll try to help.
