Any suggestions are welcome. Speaker Config:

Surround R: +5.5 db
Surround L: +0.5 db
Subwoofer: +8.5 db - is this too high?
Too high? No, as long as it's not pegged it's OK, although if you're a bit anal retentive about sound you might want to bump up the gain on your sub a bit and run Audyssey again to get it closer to zero. The Audyssey people say this is not necessary to do.
Front:: 40 Hz -
Center: 40 Hz -Are these too low?
Surround: 100 Hz
Too low? Not according to Audyssey. That being said, it's often recommended to raise crossovers that are below 80 Hz to 80. This will ease your receiver's burden a bit. Try it out and if you don't think the sound is worse it's probably best to raise it.
Subwoofer Level: On
Subwoofer Level: +8.5 db
Restorer: Mode 3(Low) -What is this even mean?
This is probably one of those technologies that attempts to correct poor quality low bitrate music streams. Use whatever makes your ears happiest. It should only do anything at all when playing mp3s and the like.
Dynamic EQ: On -Should this be on?
Probably yes. This will boost bass and treble to compensate for human hearing peculiarities when you're listening below reference volume.
Reference Offset: 0 db
Dynamic Volume: Medium - Is this ok?
Is it OK? Sure. Is it what will make you happiest? That depends. This is one setting I change frequently, depending on circumstances. Watching a movie late at night or early in the morning, I tend to bump Dynamic Volume way up to "midnight" mode, which robs dynamics but lets me hear everything clearly even at very low volume. It basically makes quiet sounds louder and loud sounds quieter.
