Most of the screenshots from the Editor you posted are meaningless stuff that Audyssey creates to show you what the results should look like. Reality is something else. That's what we will begin with today. We're going to be doing multiple REW runs to verify first what Audyssey has done, and then what we do with adjustment with the Editor app. Of course, you first have to tell the Editor App to send the initial Audyssey five position run results to the AVR. We'll also do that after each adjustment iteration.
For all the REW verification runs: Audyssey ON; Dynamic EQ OFF. You don't need to be at Reference level on the runs since Dynamic EQ is off, but I generally use -10dB.
Before proceeding, here's some adjustments that need to be done in the Editor and loaded to the AVR. Go to the Editor page that shows you what it wants to use for crossover to sub. Notice it's 40Hz. That's normal, and generally wrong. Long story. Set the 88 center to 80Hz. Set the L/R Mains at 60Hz. Set surrounds to what you think they can handle; likely 80Hz at lowest, but often 100Hz. I don't see the page with the sub low pass filter settings. That should be up at 120Hz. Make sure if there is one active on the subwoofer that it is turned up all the way...so that xt32 can control that.
Go to the page about Mid-range correction. Turn it off for the LCRs. I don't know what you have for surrounds, but if their crossover is up over 1.8KHz or higher, leave the Mid-range correction on. That dip you see at 2KHz is the Mid-range Correction Filter input.
Load all the changes to the AVR.
We're going to start with a look at the results with the sub. This is likely to be quite good. Do an REW run just for the sub using the original 5 mic positions. Average, and let's see how xt32 did.
