I just got pain ol' XT (Denon 2113ci).
Keep in mind that you need to find the proper placement before
running Audyssey if you want good results. This is essential!
My placement in the graphs I posted are not ideal, I only have the subs placed where they are because I need (crave?) the output. I can get a much better response (without the nasty null) with different placement....it's a trade off. Sometimes you gotta make the difficult choices.

As you attempt to improve your bass response, be aware that taming resonance is just as important as smoothing the frequency response.
True. But please note that my
decay times are pretty darn good to start with and even get slightly better (under 40hz) post-Audyssey.

Yeah, my THD is up to about 7.6% around 60hz where Audyssey is trying to fill in the null...doesn't make me happy.
Still a work in progress.
