Can I ask few things to gurus here?
Why don't you let MS-8 process its setting and leave it to decided what is best for you? Thats the purpose of it, isn't it?
If you leave it as it is, the drawback is, you will not be able to use morels to its max optimal potential? An I correct in saying that.
So if we go against it, favour Morels' optimal sounding over MS-8 processing and increase Morels gains as you mentioned, are we not defeating the purpose of MS-8?
If I am correct saying what I mentioned above, whichever route we take, we are in loss.
It is basically Processing (SQ) VS Sound (SPL) I guess.
The only best way around is to increase the sensitivity of central speaker or increase its peak power, but then MS-8 can only put through limited watts.
