Dave, given that first picture, I think you need to keep all of them.

Looking forward to the comparison with speaker in true full range mode.
I know others said it already, but you need to go into the receiver settings and set subwoofer or LFE to "none" or whatever the equivalent is on the 1909. If you LFE configured and you just trun the sub off, you're missing out on the lower frequencies.

Nice set of speakers \:\)

You guys can't seriously tell me that the M60's don't look better than the M80's with the grills on. No contest

Say, there are 60s in that picture. I missed that while admiring those beautifull M80s.

Dave, my attempt at humor/sarcasm was missed: I didn't say -30 on the volume control, I said 30dB. Since the noise floor in even a quiet room at home is over 30dB, the sound would be inaudible and your problem would be solved.

A less drastic suggestion that I mentioned is seeing if applying a little upper midrange/lower treble equalization to just the offensive discs would help. Your 1909 has a manual equalizer which can be used as an alternative to(not a modification of) the Audyssey equalization. One of the available frequencies is 4KHz, so you might try 4-5dB of cut there and select the manual equalizer for those discs.

I can add one thing regarding the m60's and m80's. In my past auditions, many have commented that I had my subs still on, when in fact the 60's and 80's were set to Large, and sub set to none.

The clearly DRUNK squirrel (or feral chipmunk) wins the award for most aggressive hijacking of the year. Wow, I have whiplash from that topic change.
