It will be interesting the see what you measure. On my set, Warm2 measures almost exactly 6500K, which is the target value for a properly-calibrated set. Warm1 is closer to 9000, which emphasizes...

Sorry, let us know when you find out. Or better yet, run Audyssey and accept whatever it creates as your speaker trims, and then sit back and enjoy.
