Also, is there anyway to test with "all speakers driven"? With 9 channels running that's when I'm likely to get a severe power dip in my fronts.
Acceptable levels of distortion also depend on frequency. A 10% distortion at 1000Hz would probably be more noticeable than 10% at 20Hz.

Why would you want to measure all speakers driven? This would not happen often listening to real-world content.
