I went through the setup program manually after that and changed everything to what I thought would sound right, with the help of the manual. I of course bypassed my sub's crossover, and changed all the speakers settings to small and set the crossover to 80hz. It now sounds pretty darn good. When I compare the settings between the manual settings that I put in and the receivers settings using the microphone and set up program, they sound pretty close. I was shocked. Go figure.

At least they sounded comparable! Sometimes the manual settings will end up sounding much better than the auto settings
