The closest wall behind the main listening position is 25-30ft away.
Not much treatment I can do, or rather, that the wife would allow me to do that wouldn't look horrendous.
That could explain the problems you are having with dialog intelligibility. Unfortunately, short of adding treatments or using a different room there isn't a lot you can do. Room correction EQ alone won't help in a room that is so lively. Good quality headphones might be an option. If you use good headphones and add a bass shaker under your couch, you can get a really good experience, with the bass feeling like it is coming from the headphones, even though it is the couch getting a good thump. Crowson and Buttkicker make good tactile transducers.

Is it ok to just turn on dynamic volume without dyn EQ r vice versa or should both always be on together.

Audyssey would say it's not OK -- the tonal adjustments of DEQ are necessary to keep the balance consistent as DV is lowering the volume. However, some folks find the bass boost in DEQ sort of counterproductive if they are trying to lower the late night bass using DV. Personally, I find the sound to be too thin and anemic if I'm using DV without DEQ, but there is a segment of folks out there who just hate DEQ. I use it all the time, although I always use the Ref Level Offset to tone it down a bit (rather err on the side of less compensation than too much).
