Cheating the Calibration
A couple of the receivers I own, or have owned, when calibrated, do not bring sufficient volume to the center channel for the ancient ears I possess (mid 80's). they do not have a channel-specific adjustment for volume. So I have difficulty with some programming catching the dialog. I have been successful in "Cheating the System" by placing a kitchen dish towel over the center channel speaker during calibration, then, of course removing it during play.
Yes, it likely shifts some of the playback frequencies, but upward, I think.
Not proud of it - but it works.
