For Yamaha AVRs a lot of guys like running an additional 3db on the sub trim adjust and another 3db on the bass tone setting. For that you want the sub level at least -6db to ensure it does not clip the LFE output signal. Turning the knob all the way to the left on the in line amp would take 6db off of the signal if the 3070 says it is too hot, that is the backup plan lol.
-9db was giving me 1-2db headroom on the Minidsp. I do need to run the EOT intro with the subs muted though, I believe thats as hot as physically possible.
EDIT: that was with volume 3db above where I run it too.
