ONKYO TX-NR709 AVR + Klipsch Speakers
Volume what level you listen at?
After Auddessey Setup
FRONTS: Klipsch Reference RB-61 II @ 60hz, CENTER: Klipsch Reference RC-42 II @ 100hz, Klipsch Reference RB-51 II SURROUND + SURROUND BACKS @ 100hz, Klipsch Reference II RW-10 Sub @ 120hz.

Is it all normal or should i set all speakers to @ 80hz (THX) - like manual says for front speakers recommened ?

I like to know to me the system sounds not quite as loud,no bad connection I see anywhere, I notice audessey loves putting my speakers at very low -dbs

This is room is not big so audyssey might not works for me (keep the mic 2' -3' from walls is limited ?) 10' Width x 17' Length room.

All my levels dbs for each speaker are Under 0.0 (-8.5 left = -8.5, center = -8.0, right = --7.5 Surrounds etc + Sub is in + of 1.5db)
thus i have to turn the volume up to -5.0 or so to get good sound.
is there any recommendations why for me to raise the volumes up this far for a movie +3 to +10db
i hate turning up that high of volume to get decent sound.

any help would be appreciated

Yes, you should try setting your front left and right to 80hz but leave the center and surrounds at 100hz if that's where Audyssey set them. Raising Audyssey set crossovers is fine, but never lower them from where Audyssey sets them.

Those Audyssey set speaker levels are perfectly normal for the ultra-sensitive Klipsch speakers.

However, something is surely amiss because you shouldn't have to turn it up to +10db for movies. On my system, 0db is almost painfully loud.

What are you using for a source (blu ray, HTPC, other)? Some pics of your room might be helpful.
