I wonder whats going on in the room that causes audyssey to cut below 4kHz and boost above that?

I know Audyssey doesn't read bass frequencies very well which is why it always sets the sub too low. But from 4k down to about 300 it should be good. I wonder if there are some reflections going on in the mid frequencies causing an increase in the readings, to which Audyssey then accomodates for.

I'm not sure either. I did my Audyssey setup with 6 reference points if I remember correctly. Are the levels on other people's receivers more of a flat line or do they vary like mine?

Bobby, that rising frequency response isn't typical of the regular Audyssey correction. Are you sure that you didn't set the correction parameter to "flat"(which emphasizes the high frequencies more)rather than the normal "Audyssey" curve? A remote possibility would be a defective microphone reading the high frequencies too low and causing them to be boosted unnecessarily.

Also, as Ken suggested, don't use 5-channel stereo for normal music listening. The way to put the surrounds into action with 2-channel music material is to apply DPLII or similar ambience extraction processing.

I didn't have it set to flat it was set to "Audyssey". Do you think that I should maybe balance out the levels and see what I get?

I would try an all out equal across the board setting and go from there, if it sounds to bass heavy drop the lower 2 frequencies a couple, if it is still too bright, drop the upper two, etc.

Do you mean set all to 0 or should I set the entire level a little higher?
