I prefer my bass +3dB these days too. It's fine - it's not Reference, it's Preference, but that is fine too. And because we know where we started from, we can easily go back if we wish. Kudos to you for not rushing in and for giving your ears time to acclimatise.
... I just felt like one should back off for awhile and listen to all sorts of things before jumping in and changing the Audio/Subs settings.
I watched all sorts of different Movies and I have the time to do that as I am retired now.
That being said I did not have to be concerned over how long I took to make the decision to change any Audio settings.
After reading many-many post on multiple Internet Sites about those that have ran the XT32 and made comments on "Low Bass" I knew it was not just me.
Many also had said they decided to give the XT32 Settings a chance and therefore they did not just immediately jump in and change the Sub settings.
They made perfect common sense to me so that is what I decided to do, wait !!!
But the more I listened to Movies with Bass content I just knew this was "Not" Strong
enough bass content from my 4- Mirage Subs.
I gave it some more thought and decided to go slow and adjust the Subs-levels up some.
really seems to be a really good compromise.
Not Over-Whelming by any means.
But now you just "Feel" and "Hear" bass in those movies like IMO it was meant to be.
At a setting on the 80.3 of 80 there is certainly No-Lack of Bass
now on movies like U571 & Das Boot.
Not to overlook Iron Man II & the last Transformers movie.
I think I will stay with the current +1.5
Bass Subs settings as I Do-Not wish to have the Bass content over Exaggerated.
Your right after investing $4,500.00 Plus dollars in my subs I do want to Hear & Feel them do there job.
