I did. Since my main speakers play down to 35hz easily, MCACC set them as large and I think it set the crossover to 60hz. I changed the crossover to 80hz and set the speakers to small. I also boosted the sub 3db as well. Thanks for posting the information on the speakers but it doesn't help. Your room will also play a large part in this. For example, my right speaker is set 1db louder than the left. The left is near a bare wall which reflects the sound and the right is near a window with a thick curtain which absorbs the sound. MCACC could tell that during the setup and made the appropriate changes. I do recommend setting your mic on a tripod at the same spot you sit and making sure it is at ear level. I used a few pieces of tape to make sure it did not fall off my make shift mounting system.
