It is interesting why Audyssey keeps setting the gain on the left front so much higher than the rest. Every time I run it, that speaker sticks out like a sore thumb.
There's only a couple of reasons I can think this is happening.
1. Same gauge wire to all speakers, but one is RCA (left) and the right is Monster...but that shouldn't make a difference, should it?
2. The right front is somewhat in a corner, with a wall to the right and the left of the speaker. The left front only has a wall behind it. Maybe it's getting a boost from the re-verb so the system is trying to adjust for it by setting the left louder. I do notice the test tones coming out of the Audyssey setup are MUCH louder coming from the front right.
