I havent seen anyone else do it that way, everyone else seemed to have them set the same way I am, but that doesnt mean it is the right now. I know Not chimed in on a similar layout of mine and said it was right.

Have you tried something like XMen 1st class or wotw? If you are running one of those and not getting much excursion then something is wrong. Try couple of demo scenes.
What type of ac line do you have the amp plugged inti Maybe its a 120v 15A that is sagging really bad under load which would limit the power. Just an idea.
Music that I saw clipping on was some rap. specifically Young Jeezy - put on. Ive seen the level get up there some with dubstep. that is really what I listen to most of the time right now, im giving metal a break, but listening to that, it never comes close to clipping.
Ive watched FOTP and WOTW and with dyn eq off, MV at -10 and the subs flat, I am ok, but the bass just isnt there when I do this. To get boost the subs 5db's im back to clipping, the subs definitely move, but still not like I was anticipating.
I do have the 120v 15a plug on it as this is the way Johnson sent it to me and after Husker's issues with the 220 version, I wanted to go with the sure-fire option for it to work out of the box, then adjust accordingly once I got it and measured it. Im able to pop in a 220plug if needed, and then put a new cord on the amp. Is that part hard to do or something I could do myself? is there anything else in the amp that needs to be adjusted to do this?

Im working on that, I havent really messed around in the theater this week, too much BBall and nice weather
MK is right above, I DO have it in stereo, and the sub wiring is correct. + of one VC to - of other VC and the other two left going to once channel of the FP. Ive double checked that
