I don't think so. I had a similar result and someone on here chastised me and told me to re-run until the trim was lower. I said the hell with wit cuz it sounded good to me....But: Please read this from the Audyssey Setup Guide, Subwoofer section:
Check the subwoofer trim level setting in the receiver / processor menu.
If the subwoofers’ trim level is at the maximum limit of the cut (-) or boost (+) adjustment range allowed, you need to adjust the volume control on the subwoofer and repeat step #2
. Specific instructions will follow.
Trim adjustments are a tool used to achieve the goal of producing the same Sound Pressure Level (SPL) from each speaker / subwoofer in the system.
For example, Denon receivers have a trim adjustment range from -12dB to +12dB.
If the subwoofer trim level is at the maximum boost (e.g. +12db), turn up the volume control on the subwoofer slightly and repeat step #2
If the subwoofer trim level is at the maximum cut (e.g. -12db), turn down the volume control on the subwoofer slightly and repeat step #2
A suggestion for tweakers is to adjust the sub volume such that the resulting subwoofer trim is in the range of ±3 dB.
This is only a suggestion for the tweaker who likes to play around.
Audyssey’s position is to perform steps 4 to 6 above.
