Should I leave the settings there and if so, I lose a little detail, so should i boost up the treble also? Does anyone have tips on setting up a big system in a small room?

My system consist of..

My fronts...Definitive Technology Speakers
My center....Definitive Technology
My subwoofer....Velodyne
My Receiver...Pioneer elite
My DVD player...Denon
My Surrounds...Definitive speakers
Cabling...all audioquest
