It looks like you haven't selected the device channels in the preferences dialog box. What happens when you click on the box with the little arrows under one of the speakers? You will probably (I'm "educated guessing" here) get a list of channels, from which you are supposed to assign one to that speaker. Then click on the speaker to test (after clicking "Apply," of course).
Here's hoping it's that easy.
ahblaza and Greenwood Ave like this.

Did you really need to quote that entire post in your reply?

Oh, I see why you would think that, but I took that screen shot when I was screwing around with some stuff. It's definitely not that. I wish it were that easy!

For some reason I was thinking this wouldn't solve my problem since I was so convinced that I had the OS configured properly for surround and also REW does seem to work fine for two channel through the AVR. However, from what you say it sounds like this is a problem others have solved using Soundflower. Plus, since it now seems that the Audio MIDI setup doesn't affect what happens with REW at all from what I can determine, which also makes me think this Soundflower thing is the direction forward.

What about my idea of simply moving up the crossover to 250 to take subwoofer only measurements? Is this something people do? My goal tomorrow is to measure the various subwoofer placements more methodically than I've done in the past, so the subs are really what I'm more concerned with.

My old AVR had 7.1 input so I used to just plug right into the subwoofer input for subwoofer-only measurements. Haven't figured out what I'm going to do with the new one which does not have those inputs.

If you have separate amps the easiest thing to do is to turn off all the amps for the channels you're not testing.

I use now MacMini that has HDMI out and Soundflower works flawlessly, when I tried to make it work with my Macbook pro that only had Thunderbolt I could not make Soundflower flip through the HDMI channels. Here is the link to Soundlower "manual"

But if you want to do subs only with RCA cable, then just unplug the speakers and signal will only go to subs

Change is the only constant.
