Not necessarily. It's all relative. Mid-bass is mid-bass n should slam at any volume level if the FR is flat in 80hz to 160-200hz region.

Even if one is flat within that region; other factors...

Your post is too lengthy to digest. But quad is the way to go if you can perfectly time align them. Dual is a PITA; quad is like committing suicide. But if u can time align them; nothing like it

Try any movie of George Clooney; you'd still hear his voice through sub even if your sub is crossed at 80Hz and those new cables. Some male voices do seep into sub; that's how it is.

Setting absolute levels using actual source (BD/DVD) is the more accurate than REW/UMIK-1 combo. I wouldn't use or recommend the later apart from just FR measurements.

That's right. REW is only there to help you determine how your system will sound in the listening area. You can also get the idea of the relative levels, but you do not set absolute levels with REW....

Yeah that's correct. But disregard the levels in REW. They are not applicable during actual playback. The idea is to get the overall FR flat or dial in a House/Hard Knee Curve. If you want to keep...

That is another issue; where more than one device in your equipment rack is trying to assume grounding duties, which causes hum.

Why do you keep saying 90dB on LFE?? LFE @ reference is 115dB, and adding redirected bass, it's around 120dB. You are pushing your sub way too much. No single sub is capable of hitting 120dB cleanly...

You are clipping sub output in AVR. Lower the sub trim level in avr and raise the gain knob on the sub amp. Don't raise the sub trim above 00 in avr. Also, you don't need to change LFE level; let it...

If that's best you can come up with and your sub n cc are level matched, change the sub location. Your sub response is 8 dB too low; no amount of electrical delay can raise your low end.
