You have a ~$1500 set of speakers and are looking at AVRs in the $3K-$4K range?? Your balance is out of whack and should be completely the other way around as suggested by JP12 and Zorba922.

+1 to this.

I too, run my subs about 15dB hot...but I have a lot more woofage/headroom available. It's a sickness. :)

Leave the bottom scale set to 5hz-200hz like you had it (and if you are going with the ported config, 15-200hz will suffice).
