Audyssey should pull most of that down. If it isn’t, then there is another issue. You may need to optimise speaker/sub locations, experiment with different positions for MLP and so on, assuming you...

I do have a loss of about 4dB. I put it down to the cuts that Dirac Live is making during the filter creation (I believe it favors cuts over boosts for sensible reasons). As you say, it is no big...

It depends how big the peak is. Audyssey has limitations on how much it can boost or reduce frequencies. What do you call a "huge peak"?

Not really - see above. This is a common enough technique when the character in the scene is not supposed to be able to understand the other person's language, for reasons of the story. If a subtitle...

When you go to the scene I posted above do you see the subtitle?
