This suggests to me that you have not read the Audyssey 101 and FAQ
. The instructions in the equipment manufacturers' owners' manuals are woefully inadequate and often misleading (as for the microphone positions). The Audyssey 101 document here on AVS will help you to get a better calibration.
BTW I have another doubt, finally I could use the XLR output to center and surround speaker and run again audyssey and I was surprised that the level set for it in this speaker was lower than before, for my center with rca cables was -3 dB and now with xlr is -1dB and the same thing happened with my surround, if the xlr have a gain of about 6dB why Audyssey set it with more gain that before?
The actual gain difference depends on the implementation of the two types of connections in your amps. Different designs have different gains.
After my last Audyssey reconfiguration the sub was taken of my system, not sound are coming from it, I think this room correction are not ok.
Check the subwoofer channel's trim level in the receiver. If it's "too low", the signal getting to the subwoofer might not be high enough to trigger the sub's auto-on feature. i.e. turn down the gain on the subwoofer itself so that the 8801 will turn up its output signal. Also, you'll have to manually change the settings for your front speakers from "Large" to "Small" in order to enable bass management with low frequencies redirected to the subwoofer. (This is all explained in the Audyssey FAQ
