I calibrated my speakers using the internal tones from a Denon AVR to 75db for the speakers and 65db for the sub. My initial sweeps look like this. Falling from 100db to around 80db at the 80hz crossover then stay around 80db. Should this not be around 80db for the subs as well? Do I still have the subs way too loud?

But this chart shows they are way too loud. I guess I need to further lower the sub channel trim and re-sweep?

bit high IMO but its preference, when you hear it does it sound to loud in bass for your taste? if not then its not too loud.

I like about +12dB...(250hz to 20 at about 1.8-2dB/Oct soundsgood to me in my room)
