OK Baloo, it sounds to me like you haven't set your speaker levels with an SPL meter, is that correct? You most likely have your subwoofer's gain set too high. You should also set the speaker...

This. And if you could move the seating a bit more forward it would help with the rear surrounds, they should really be at least 2' behind the seating and angled towards the seating area.

Thanks Mark!

Don't you think 11/12 looks slightly better than 5/6 (no giant null at 102hz [pos 5]) for the front/rear setup? Or, are you thinking 5/6 would provide more output and would be worth...

Yeah, 11 & 12 look better than 3 & 4 (FR), a definite possibility with a nice spread of subwoofage.

Did you re-run Audyssey? Did you adjust the phase on the rear sub for max SPL at the MLP? If not, that could explain the strangeness you experienced with the sub behind the couch.
