might as well not use it then.

Maybe thats not such a bad idea??

It seems to mee Audyssey is detecting room suckout not the -3db point of the speaker. In a way, its making a bad thing (a room mode reducing frequencies between the real -3db point and 150Hz) and making it worse. Too bad you can't manually set the -3db point.

Edit: I'm glad I don't have the choice of Audyssey on my receiver. This stuff can be confusing enough as it is.

I was thinking the same thing as Fred, just dump Audyssey and try it with a 80hz XO for the rears, sides and center and 60hz for the mains and see how it sounds.

I am thinking the M2s wouldn't be any better than the QS's, they have a high roll off point as well according to their graph. Maybe a set of M3's with that upper bass hump/depressed mid graph would be the better choice for rear duty in that large of a room, other than a second sub placed behind the listener to even out the bass response through out the room which really appears to be the main issue.

I also remember when I first got my surrounds I really wanted to hear them. I paid for them dammit! Once I settled in and got used to the whole 5.1 things, the surrounds started to sound better when they were properly level matched.

Um, "REAR" duty.
I'll let you figure out the fourth option.
