As I said in my previous post, if the subs are equidistant, you don't need the 2x4. And check my 2x4 setup guide (only one of many, of course), linked in my sig, prepared specifically to consolidate...

I think that will be the best long-term solution. Having a "standard" solution will make it much easier to get advice down the road.

Same settings for all content. Why would they be different? (HDR seems to be an exception, but I don't have a lot of experience with HDR at this time.)

If the issue is with the disk, which I believe it is, then I don't know of any reliable way to know ahead of time whether the blackness of the bars will meet your expectations.
