Lol. That's not the point actually. Did you try with Audyssey off but still calibrated to the same levelto see if Audyssey is just boosting the low end like in my setup where it has 7hz +23dB as compared to 30hz? Did you rerun Audyssey with the sub turned down to allow it to properly set the level and avoid it messing up the EQ entirely? Kinda' a big deal... kinda why I suggested it in the first response
Since Audyssey set your sub to -15 there's no way to know how hot you're running it currently. If this was my setup, even if I just had been running the sub 10dB hotter than the mains my ULF content (the specific content you're experiencing issues on) would be running +33dB as compared to the rest of the subwoofer
Clipping comes VERY early in this scenario which I quickly found out when I clipped my EP2500 with the MV at only -20dB during Bass, I Love you
Ideally I'd setup a loop through measurement of the subwoofer out on your AVR to see exactly what Audyssey is doing to the sub signal. Pretty simple actually just setup REW and instead of connecting your Rat Shack SPL meter to the input on your sound card connect the subwoofer output on the AVR to the sound card input.
