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.
By no means am i a guru, but the optimum autotune is when everythings is level matched. The reason why i can raise my gains after is that all my front stage is amped. So if i can make sure i raise all gains by the same amount, then it doesn't mess with the autotune, apart from the rears, which are attenuated.The rears dont matter to me so i can live with that. If i got more efficient rears, such as infinity kappas, then i wouldnt need to lower the gains of the rest to match them.

If you have a unamped centre speaker which is "quieter" than the rest, then yes you will sacrifice a bit of SPL, as you will f**k up the balance if you raised the gains. But if all the front stage is amped you can have both.
