I unpluged my fridge, and unluged my internet and cablebox. It now sounds amazing. the center is less bright but great punch at -7.5 db. The fronts have punch also, I can hear far more detail yet the fronts now are quieter DB wise at -6 and -6.5. Even though they are 2.5-3 db softer than the last test they are much louder and sound very crisp. This sounds amazing. I paid full attention to the distance away from the cushiion, exactly 2 ft from the cement wall and exactly 11 inches from the cushion on the couch. Thats it. The difference is drastic. I can even notice a difference between audyseey settings now.
Glad the tips worked out for you! Enjoy!
