The notation in the manual that describes setting the front panel fader to '7' is a commercial cinema thing left over from the AP20. Setting the fader to '-34' is equivalent as reference when setting up an RS20i.
When configuring an RS20i ...
FIrst be sure to turn OFF Bass Management. Check to be sure that all channel delays are zeroed, channel trim levels are zeroed (if possible) and all forms of EQ are OFF. Any and all active crossovers should be configured and running.
Best practice is to set your amplifier levels at 85dB with a sound level meter using the noise generated internal to the RS20i (channel trim level screen) or the Dirac Live app if you prefer. Use whichever source feels most comfortable to you. Be sure to 'zero out' the trim levels for every channel on the RS20i. Adjust for 85dB using the gain control on your amplifiers as first choice. Resort to using the RS20i trim levels as your fall back. The reason for this is that you want to make course adjustments with your amplifiers and 'fine tune' gain later with the trim levels of the RS20i. Set your subwoofer channels to 85dB as well. You can increase the gain once you've generated the Dirac Live filters. Since you have so many subwoofers setting the final gain on those channels to get them to sound right will be a challenge of its own!
Once you have generated the Dirac Live filters, loaded them to your RS20i and turned Dirac Live on, you will need to go thru the channel level adjust excersise one more time to 'touch it up' because the filters will have affected the gain of the channels. This time use the RS20i trim levels to set channel gain. Be sure that all filters (including bass management) are ON as any form of EQ and channel mixing will affect gain structure.
The levels as set by the proxy app don't play a role in the configuration process. The levels sets on the proxy app are a convenience for use later when you are doing a demo 'with and without' Dirac Live.
