Then lower the gain knobs on your subs prior to running Audyssey until the sub level is set closer to 0db (eg. -3db). That part hasn't changed. :)

If the sub levels are set to -8db/-9db after running Audyssey (which is fine), simply use the Subwoofer Level settings to raise both settings to 0db.

If every device in the HDMI chain, has the HDMI-CEC/HDMI Control setting set to ON, then yes, it is "possible" but generally only powering all OFF is more common.

If the unit shuts down at a louder volume you prefer, then as noted above, simply add a more powerful external amp (eg. Emotiva XPA-2, XPA-3, XPA-5).
