All speakers are set to Small.
Crossover set to 80 Hz for all speakers
LPF for LFE set to 120 Hz
Subwoofer mode : LFE
Dynamic Volume: off
Subwoofer volume Level: -3.5 db

Speakers:
Fronts: RF 82 II
Center: RC 62 II
Surround: RS 54 II
Rear: RS 42 II

Subwoofer: SVS PB 2000
Volume set to 12o Clock
Low Pass Filter set to 120Hz
Phase set to 0

I ran the audyssey on the receiver but still feel something is missing..
I had a similar experience last week with a similar setup. I must've messed with the receiver settings/sub placement for at least 6hrs. The last thing I did before giving up was swapping my old Pioneer VSX-32 with the Denon. Right away I noticed that both the sub and the RF82II's sounded better with the Pioneer. I was surprised since the Pioneer is weaker and is almost 4 years older.

FOR SALE:
Denon X4000 BNIB
Klipsch RF-82 II BNIB
Klipsch RS-52 II BNIB
Klipsch SW-112 BNIB
Klipsch WA-2 BNIB

Another thing you could do is put your mains at full range which in turn bypasses any XO.
Why does the sub need to be turned up higher? I've always had my PB2000 in the 12-1 o'clock range. Depending on the room it would set the trim on my Pioneer/Denon to -3 to -4.5. I was told by the guys at SVS that as long as it's not in the positive side that it was fine. I also gives me a little room to turn up the sub a few dbs if I want.

What is source? If it is Blu-ray - did you turn on bit streaming on your player audio settings

Denon X4000 is on the brighter side; but I suggest re-run your audyssey with multiple positions (4 or more) and make sure you are selecting DTS-MA or Dolby TrueHD on your AVR to get SQ of your liking

Thanks for all your replies.

I will increase the volume on the sub and see if it improves the sound.

Also, How do I get the sound crispness with these speakers? what factors for the crispness in the sound? Is it the crossover frequency or by design, these speakers are bright?

I had always set my sound mode to Dolby Surrounds (PL II Cinema), changed the sound mode to DTS but do not see noticeable difference.
