Three things come to mind. Your basic volume level is about 15dB higher than I would normally recommend.
Go through the procedure where you set all the volume trims to 0, then adjust Test Level to get 75dB SPL from the LF speaker, and finally adjust the volume knob in your sub to generate 75dB SPL given that same Test Level and still a 0dB volume trim in the Anthem.
ARC will use the Setup > Speaker Calibration > Test Level (or Noise Level in the older units) to set the volume of its test sweep tones, and done this way you've also pre-configured your sub's volume to be roughly in balance already when using that Test Level.
Ballpark adjustments are fine for both of these as ARC will do all the fine adjustment.
Usually a basic volume level set up this high in the ARC solution means it is having trouble finding a combo of settings to balance all the speakers -- and usually it is the sub that is the culprit.
This change will require re-Measurement.
Next your Room Gain is perhaps a little low. You didn't post your Targets window so I'm not sure what ARC discovered there. If you are below 2dB you might want to try raising up that Target value (leave the Force box checked) and see if you like the sound of that better.
This change can be done just be re-Calculating and re-Uploading. No need to re-Measure.
Finally your surrounds are a little weak in bass -- causing ARC to set the crossover kind of high for them. This is not that big a deal but if you have an adjustment in them to produce more bass (e.g., a bass port that can be opened) that would get a better match to your front speakers.
Otherwise I think you are in good shape.
