Does that have anything with the fact that these are 6ohm speakers while the surrounds are 8ohms?
yes, you have plenty of power. I doubt the 6/8ohm is the reason why your system isn't getting loud.
How high is your ceiling? Not sure what is wrong, but something is amiss. When you run Audessy, what levels/distances does it set your speakers at? Nice room, btw...

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and EMP e5Bi surrounds, Outlaw LFM1 Plus sub, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub
Set up #3: Philharmonics- BMR in a 2.0 system, music only

I would pick up an SPL meter and see how loud your room is getting. That would be the first step in troubleshooting because your amp has plenty of power for these speakers.

Thanks Elihawk.
Ceilings are 8ft. attached are the Audyssey results. I tweaked them a bit to bump up the Sub and the Center by 2dbs after.

Thanks, will read up on using the SPL meter, never used it. will pick one up over the weekend.
One thing i did not mention is that the surround sound is pretty good, its just the front stage that seems to be the problem.

If you’ve done the following when running Audyssey, then ignore this post.

1. Make sure you use a tripod. Better yet, a boom with the mic attached at the end. Stand off to the side and keep yourself out of the soundstage area. Make sure each mic position is less than 2 feet away from the previous position. Keep the mic within the soundstage area when positioning.
2. After running the first mic position, check on the subwoofer trim level in the menu. It should read between -3 and -6 or -6 and -9 (I use the latter and run my sub 4 or 5 dB hot, others use the former). Adjust the gain level on the sub and redo the first test until you see those numbers. I’m surprised that your subwoofer distance was calculated at only 10.3 ft. I think that should be more than your front speakers, say like 15 feet (the sub number isn’t really a matter of distance, it’s a matter Audyssey considering the time delay of the sub). Anyway, once you are satisfied with the subwoofer trim level, redo Audyssey from the start and go through all 6 or 8 positions (depending upon your level of Audyssey).
3. Take note of how Audyssey has setup each speaker and subwoofer and write all the numbers down. Also check to see where Audyssey has crossed over your speakers/subwoofer. Make sure your speakers are set to "small". If unhappy, adjust to your preferences.
4. Anytime you add, subtract or move furniture in the room, or adjust speaker/subwoofer locations, rerun Audyssey.

Music area: Magnepan 3.6, McIntosh MC2205 & C48, SVS SB13-Ultra, Oppo BDP 95, dbx 3BX, and assorted equipment.
Movie area: EMP Tek R5Bi, RBH/EMP Tek R55Ti, PSA S3000i, Denon X2000, Oppo BDP 83.
