After I was playing around with the settings while watching Aquaman, I realized this is what I want to try next. I only watch movies in this room, so that's all I'd be shooting for.

Audyssey/Denon set my Crossover for the Mains and Center at 40Hz. I moved that up to 80Hz. I watched a youtube video from Subwoofer 101 who gave a "Hack" to raise the Crossover of your mains and center to 90 or 100 as that can sometimes help the performance of LFE. I moved it up to 90Hz, but don't know if I noticed a difference with the 80Hz I had it set at before.

Dynamic EQ with a 15 or 10db offset may also work for you.
What does the Offset do? I saw that underneath the Dynamic EQ, and it's defaulted to 0dB.

Room is not ideal due to height. The room is 13' wide by 19' deep. However, the Ceiling is low, and very low in the back. The ceiling height is 7'6" from front wall back to about 11'. The ceiling drops down about 6-8" for the remaining 8' to the back wall. Where the ceiling drops down, I also have about a 6-7" Riser, so the actual height of that 8' to the back wall is about 6'6". These are estimates as I haven't measured that for a long time.
I have two SVS Subs.
I have a PB12-NSD (which has a native 20 Hz tune with a single 4" Port) that I turned on the side and is in the front between my Left and Center speaker, with the Sub's speaker facing the listeners. My other SVS Sub is an older 16-46 CS Plus (which has a native 16Hz Tune with all ports open). Per Ed Mullen, they will still work together. This Cylinder Sub is placed along the right wall, about 11' from the front wall. That's the only place I have for the Cylinder Sub UNLESS I put it behind the back row of seats. However, the Riser doesn't contain sand, just Pink Insulation as I never intended placing a sub back there. Maybe I should run Audyssey without the Cylinder Sub in the equation?
Years ago, I had the PB12-NSD in the front Left corner and it sounded good (I did not have the Cylinder Sub at the time....it was given to me by a friend a few years back and this is the first time I've used it). I am now unable to place the PB12 in that corner with the new set up. At that ime, I used my Radio Shack SPL Meter and a Spreadsheet from AVS (this was from many years ago) that included Adjustments on the Spreadsheet for certain frequencies since the SPL meter wasn't exact at certain low frequencies. I played a CD with 10Hz up to about 100Hz, logged the dB readings from the SPL Meter into the spreadsheet and looked at the Curve. I moved that one sub around until I had the flattest curve and it was in the front left corner.
I have my L/R/C all pushed out a couple feet from the front wall. Does the C2 do better closer to a boundary wall or out from it?
