Done, Done and Done. Top firing is poo and not much difference between front and rear. Currently I've set it as Front.

You think a HU upgrade will result in significant difference? something like a P80 PRS?

IMHO other than Time Alignment, which is there in quite a few HUs, P80RS will not be justified at it's price only to improve bass. P80RS is good overall, so one has to look at it differently.

Yes I figured as much. I went ahead and moved the gain knob to 1/2 over the earlier 1/4th. The bass response compared to the treble is much more in balance now. I did this after speaking to some people who figured the box rise could be a bit much for my enclosure at 1.277 Cu.Ft and the final the impedance could be as much as 3Ohms.

I still have to turn the volume up a little more than I'd like but its significantly better than where it was earlier at 1/4th. I will have a check on the 4Ch gains as I think it might be higher than what it should be at. Also, I ran my palm over the Subwoofer cone surface after half an hour of listening to heavy hitting music and the Subwoofer wasn't warm at all.
Perhaps I've finally found a good point for my Ultimo SC to be fed at : ).....

Correct you are...
I have upgrades planned, I've ended up spending more than I originally set out to so these upgrades will take place after a couple of months. I will also use the time to research more products. I wish to eventually upgrade speakers, sound deaden all doors and upgrade HU as well.

Following is what I have and what I have narrowed down so far:

Current - Upgrade
Sony XAV-64BT - P80 PRS
TS-A1605C/TS-A6965R - Morel Tempo
No Sound Deadening - Sound Deaden

If my current amplifier fails to bring those speakers to life I will consider upgrading the mainstream series Pioneer amplifier to two exotic ones instead. I think the 80PRS would make much more sense later on with those upgrades in place and not right now, DerAlte.
