I am not sure this really is related to REW at this point. It sounds like there are other issues you need to deal with first. If I am reading you wrong I apologize and we can start over.

You don't really calibrate your room either, although you might acoustically treat it at some point, which might be a form of calibrating a room.

At this point I think you need to use the Auto-Setup feature of your Denon receiver and make sure you have all your speaker levels and distances correct. Sometimes after using the Auto-Setup feature you will have to change some of the settings it makes for you. Check the levels with an SPL meter using the built-in test tones... the measure the distance from you main listening position to your speakers to make sure the distances are correct. Make any necessary changes.

Try switching between the Audyssey equalized setup and no equalization to see which sounds best to you.

After these steps, you are probably then ready to dive into REW and what it can do for your low end response.

It would be a good idea to take a minimal investment in Avia DVD or digital video essentials DVD and a Radio Shack SPL meter. Then you can start to fine tune the system. This gives you a little more control over the auto setup.
