Depending on what's actually on the media's LFE track you might get 100-250 out of the subwoofer so that may or may not have been an issue.
Keep using the same media for all testing so that part of the system is stable and repeatable.

If you are using an amp is it driving all speakers or is the AVR handling part of the load?

9 O'clock is low, its generally recommended to start off at 12 o'clock on the subs level control.

My sub is set to to around the 8:30 and HSU recommends 9 oclock. After audyssey runs it's tests typically it's in the -3db to -5.5db. last nights test it landed it on the -3db mark.

I re-watched FURY the 4 tank vs. 1 tank scene and although it lacks subsonic bass it has very good bass in the 35-100hz range and the movie did not sound the same as before.

I'll have to play around with it and turn the sub back like it was and re run audyssey again.

Since audessey is setting the subwoofer channel to -3dB the volume control on the sub is set correctly.

Exactly. It's dialed in good. However I can run tests several times back to back and it's anywhere from -5.5db to -3db. Which is fine and I usually bump it about 2-3db for my liking.

I think the issue before was the crossovers being messed up I was getting overlap from the speakers to sub.

I need to start playing around with placement now is all.

Another way to look at -5.5 to -3.0 is +/- 1.25dB which is actually pretty good.

Re: X4000 crossovers do not work?

eh... The X4000 is constantly shutting down. I've checked everything... unplugged all the HDMI... and did it back to back to back to back at one point... shuts down then blinks orange about once a second.

Let it sit off for awhile and then no issues. I remember now what was happening before when it did it. It was day 29 of purchase before it happened so I was basically past the A4L return... but back then only did it once and didn't think much of it.

The hard reset brought it back ugh. Remember I have no speakers connected to the X4000 I'm using RCA connections to the Krell.

Looks like I either:

A. send it to Denon
B. Buy another X4000 and wait for other one get repaired then sell it off
C. Buy marantz model... I think Sonnie has one available for 1500.

Either way I don't tolerate bad equipment. Bummer.

I don't know if A4L can do anything for you or not, but a phone call and asking nicely never hurts and the price is right.
