when you say you run 2 sub as one, you meant that they're daisy chained, if so, have you tried them separetely during the calibration ?
I'm running Audyssey XT32, non pro. Waiting for the Franin to stop by with his kit.
The subs are ran as a .1 thru my pre/pro. They're not daisy chained.

Still waiting for Chris to reply. I did send him the email late last night. I'll read Jonfo's write up later today. I'm pretty sure I know what it says.

Make sure the Audyssey mic is not getting any interference from chair/couch by either reclining the chair or raising the mic higher than the chair back. Make sure you take closer mic positions around the LP area. The mic should be moved around the bubble around the LP no more than 2 feet left to right or front to back of the LP. Don't worry about the seats that are beyond this 2 foot bubble. Save those seats for the in-laws.
One other thing you should check is the speaker cable itself. With the boosting of the main speakers + 7 in your case the mic is calculating that your speakers are playing quieter than expected. Do you use Banana plugs, spades or bare wire. I have found out in the past that I can get better calculations when a client had bare wire by just cutting off the tips of the wire, stripping back some of the jacket, so there is a nice clean unoxidized end to the wire. Hope this helps.
I'm typing this on my phone in the car wash. That's why brief responses.
Yes, the mic is and always has been above the furniture. Keep in mind all other speaker and sub settings are fine. Speaker is attached using spades. Not cutting those off for bare wire.
I'll run another cal tonight using different mic positions. See what happens.
Car wash is done. Gotta go.
