L/R: B&W 804s
C: B&W HTM4
Surround:B&W CWM652 (in-wall)
Sub: Velodyne SPLR-1200 sub (has it's own room EQ that can't be turned off)
**EDIT** I have no idea why the pics are upside down. They are right side up on my Mac. Also Dolby Volume was auto set to Low. I changed it to off. Should I have left it at low?
First, no worries about the upside down pics... I have a laptop, so I just tuned it upside down
Your pics of the room are very helpful... they actually confirmed my first though when I looked at your graphs... your front right is trapped in a corner really close to the walls. Looking at the pics, I'm not sure there is much you can do with your current subs placement. IF you had more room, I would have suggested that you move the Front right further away from the walls. That being said, ARC has mostly done a nice job of correcting for all of the excessive boundary gain on the right front speaker.
As for the surrounds... the left surround could use some more boundary gain, but given it is fixed in the wall, clearly not an option. Again, ARC has done a nice job of helping to fill what is missing, so no worries.
The center looks pretty good as is. If it is not flush with the front of the table it is on (or even with the grill slightly hanging over the front), you could try pulling it forward slightly to see if that helps smooth out those dips you have at around 120Hz and 220Hz.
The place I would really focus is the sub. First off, the subs level is WAY
to high. I'm guessing it should almost be turned down 50% from where it is now. Is it at max volume at the moment?
Also, it looks like you may have a crossover or low pass filter engaged on the sub. Set all crossovers and low pass filters to bypass, if possible, or as high as they will go (probably like 180Hz?).
You may need to try a few different possitions with your sub as well. You can use Quick Measure to help you. You want to try and get the 30-50Hz hill to settle a little more and get the 120 (and a bit at 60) to come up.
Feel free to post a pic of the controls on the sub if you want us to take a look at them to help out.
