Okay so I spent the day trying to get reacquainted with the 530s after initially giving up on them because they were ever so slightly annoying my ears. I honestly missed their amazing clarity so I thought I'd give them a second chance. I moved them closer in (right beside my TV instead of a few feet off to each side), pointed them more forward and raised them up a few inches so that my ears are no longer aligned with the tweeters. And now suddenly they don't annoy me!
The only issue I'm having now is getting my subwoofer balanced with them. Music was initially too bass-heavy so I turned my sub down a bit and got it to where everything sounded great. Unfortunately (for reasons I cannot figure out) when I play PS4, the bass is too low. Explosions have no punch to them like they did before. Sure I could get down on my knees and adjust my sub back up to where it was initially, but then when I go back to listen to music it's too bass-heavy again. I can't seem to troubleshoot why this is. With my old speaker setup (using the same sub), I could just set my sub at approximately 50% and it was the perfect amount of bass across all inputs/sources. But suddenly I hook up the 530's and I have to choose between too bass-heavy music or gaming with not enough bass. I tried fiddling with the bass settings within my AVR but they don't seem to make much difference at all. If I can just get this ONE issue resolved I'm going to be happy as a pig in ***** with these JBLs.
