I guess the bass management in Audyssey XT just isn't smart/powerful enough to handle this correctly. My fronts are rated to -3db at 28Hz so they should be treated as additions subs which would help even out standing waves and sub response. Would higher end Audyssey (XT32/Pro) handle this better? What about Dirac?

They're rated at -3db at 28Hz in the mfr's test environment. In your room in their current location, they are reacting as the AVR has set them.

Think your AVR is defective? Check the Owner's manual and do a factory reset 4-5 times if necessary.

I understand what you're getting at but it still seems very wrong. All the speakers are about equidistant and pointing at the listening position / mic. Audyssey sets all five speakers as small. Even stranger, it sets the small center for a crossover at 60Hz, the L1290s (8" dual woofers, surround) at 40Hz, the small L470s (rear) at 40Hz, but the giant L1590s (10" dual woofers, front) at 150Hz! The SVS sub is in the front, left corner of the room. FYI, all five non-subs are against the walls of a rectangular 16' wide by 13' deep room.

So you're telling me that Audyssey has determined that I could replace the giant L1590s with the bookshelf L470s and it would make no difference?
