So I'm done setting my system and the only thing I'm still confused about is what should I set the treble tone setting in my receiver. It sounded good with "+4dB", but some folks told me that running bass and treble tone settings more than "0dB" is not good because the receiver is working harder this way. Also with treble and bass tone settings more than "0dB" does not give sound as the producer intended to give. I'm trying to run my AVR as cool as possible but it also runs cool with "+4dB" treble tone setting and it also sounds better as I can hear sound from my fronts better and more alive.

Forget about what others say, the whole point is for you to enjoy your system/music. Bumping up the treble a bit will do no harm, so if it sounds better to you that way, then do it.

+1. If you weren't supposed to use the EQ controls there wouldn't be any.

Please limit thread topics to one thread vs multiple threads on the same question in multiple forums. We've made this request before.
