I held a meter 6 inches away from the front of the speaker. I guess I could d/c the center, but it's 6 feet away from either side, and I could certainly hear the side more than the center. And I've had enough unplugging and plugging (for now).

Or stop measuring, which is what I've done.
None of which explains the dips in FR when I turn on any of the processing modes besides Neo 6: Music.
And, of course, with an HDMI system, you can get a center-only reading, so for everyone else, the point is moot.
But many thanks for your suggestions and encouragement.
Next step: limp membrane trap, just for grins.
