No, you are not good. That means the receiver "ran out of room" attempting to negatively trim your subs. You need to lower the gain (try 1/4 to 1/3 gain) and then re-run Audyssey. You want it NOT to be "pegged" at the max value.

Follow batpig and my practical idea.

Before running Audyssey, it was at a lower setting. Should the gain remain at halfway after calibration has completed?
All the info you need is here:

f)3. How do I set the controls on my subwoofer before running MultEQ?

Sorry: you need to turn the subwoofer gain control way down, probably even lower than where it was originally.

"Between", not "at". Unfortunately, a value of -12dB is where Audyssey pegs on most equipment. That value means that Audyssey turned down the receiver's subwoofer output as far as it could and it was still too loud.


Where did the "delete post" command go?
