Next, I suggest clearing out your eq and distance settings for your subs (write it all down so you can put it back if needed) and read through all the way first then try it, the
The thing I posted before will come into play in step 7 of Matt's guide, when it is time to globally eq your subs before step 8 where you integrate them with your mains.
I was already pretty comfortable with it, but going though it again helped understand a couple things for sure. I kind of wish I could get those drivers working so I could more easily sweep with each channel. I am sure a global crossover point doesn't make sense considering I run towers and a large center. I will mess with that and see if I can get it working soon.
I do have all of my settings saved (written down, and pictures/screen grabs) so no worries there. Plus there really isnt much to clear out, no distance settings, no delay, and only 4 or 5 EQ settings mainly trying to tame that sub 20htz bump.

From your first post you mentioned having everything maxed and still wanting more, I'm wondering if it is that your AVR cant fully drive the iNuke so even though your volume is maxed, your really only using 1/2 the amps potential....
Again I am grasping at straws and this one hit me during my 1st MD of the day, which is when my brain is waking up lol
Well I already want to change receivers to gain ATMOS, and native 4K ability, plus I think a large part of my "problem" is how it processes the 2 channel info vs multi channel. I may try and borrow a Denon from a friend (a few friends have Denon's) and see what that gets me. I really think that RTA of the two channel vs 7 channel shows the problem. It wasn't a song that really bumped, but it was significantly less so when it was the 2 channel file.
I remember seeing something about the output of Yamaha's sub outs. I think I saw it in reference to the MiniDSP, but I would assume it would apply here as well. It would still have to tie into how Yamaha processes 2 channel vs multi channel though since I can get a satisfying amount of bass with movies. However, I think it would explain why I have the inuke almost all the way up at times. Seems like that should be too much power for the subs (I have no limiter set).
Also, I have wondered if 120db is really all I should get out of these 4 subs. I was measuring 110db with a single sub wired at 8 ohm. Just a random rambling thought that popped inn my head. Can I check some voltages or something to see if I am getting enough input into the amp, or enough output out of it?
