I have ARX A1s and I might not listen as loud as some people but I've had them at 85 dbs before and they still sound very composed to me at that level. It could also be your amp clipping though, but...

I wouldn't worry about dolby atmos and your receiver is fine, just make sure you get speakers that are 6 or 8 ohm and you'll be good to go. I haven't personally heard any on your list but I've heard...

Are you not going to have a center channel? I would think with home theater you really want a center and with a $1500 budget for all 5 speakers that should be no problem. Most people will chime in...

Yeah midrange probably isn't the best term, midbass is probably more accurate.

I use an emotiva UMC 200 which has a built in parametric EQ. You really need some kind of measuring system though to properly use EQ, I use REW which is pretty easy to use.

I have a set of 505's as well and just like any subwoofer and most towers for that matter they will sound boomy if not setup right. The room has more to do with frequencies under 100HZ sounding boomy...

Looks like the mic was the issue, it's pretty consistent with the new one except the 60hz area has the big spike.

I tried in my upstairs bedroom that doesn't have any electronics in it. Just the laptop on battery power and I got the same 60hz spike. Does that mean the mic is faulty? I think it's done this ever...
