1. Although the speaker settings are normal, the sub gain is set too high on the sub and so must be lowered (eg. from 12 o'clock to 9 o'clock) and run Audyssey again until the final sub setting is closer to 0db than to -12db, Review the Audyssey 101/FAQ Guide linked in my sig for more information.
2. After running Audyssey, the AVR will set the "reference" levels, although you can then further adjust the sub/dialogue levels to suit your "preference."
3. As noted in the Owner's manual, as long as the speaker wire is confirmed wired correctly, ignore the phase errors.
4. Read through the Audyssey 101/FAQ Guide linked in my sig.

Great answers + the 101/faq really helped.
1.But the seperate dialogue/subwoofer still doesnt make any sense to me. So when i run the Audyssey it adjust the individual speaker level relative to each other to make them sound as equal as possible. And the seperate individual dialogue/sub allows me to tweak even more, but shouldnt this affect the sub/center in the individual speaker settings.
For example, if the seperate sub setting is set at -3.5 and I raise it to +2db, shouldnt it also raise the level for the sub in the speaker level for all individual speakers? (It was -4 and it also raises to +2b) When I raise the individual sub and center it doesnt affect the setting for the sub/center where all speakers levels can be adjusted. Why? What's the relation?
2.As for volume....every says that reference is 0 or 85db continious. But my my marantz receiver just shows 0 to 98. There is also an option for a minus to a plus number. What scale should i be looking at and at what number for the reference level. Currently it seems loud at about 80.
