Eliminated some of the dips in FR with the new placement. Looks better overall I think. You got a new dip in the lower frequencies, but doesn't look like much.[/QUOTE]

Tone control is at 'bypass'. Again, because it effects all the speakers, I didn't like it.

YPAO 'Flat' gave me a +6db gain on the 1khz band for the center channel, which is insane considering it...

@ bolded

Yes. Because the tone control affects ALL speakers, not just one speaker. So if the center channel is the only speaker causing some fatigue, you may just want to tame it a little and not...

Used to do that.

I see Audioholics.com converts these numbers to 2m RMS, by subtracting 9dB. After that, they are much closer to Rythmik, such as the LV12R and VTF-2 MK5, 101dB at 20Hz.
