Hi guys can you have a look at these graphs and my adjustments and let me know if its all ok please?

How do I know what headroom I have and how do I know if i'm clipping the sub or minidsp?

This is the sub only before and after graph...



This is the final graph for the MLP...



This is the main listening positions and an average...





This is my sub and mains...





My process was the EQ using the miniDSP before Audyssey the tweak it after. These are the filters I used to get the final results.

Band 1 = Frequency 22, Gain -3.6, Q 2.
Band 2 = Frequency 32, Gain -16, Q 2.4.
Band 3 = Frequency 38, Gain -3, Q 18.9.
Band 4 = Frequency 20, Gain -0.2, Q 9.2.
Band 5 = Frequency 30, Gain 4.7, Q 4.6.
Band 6 = Frequency 45, Gain 8, Q 7.
Band 7 = Frequency 59, Gain 4, Q 6.
Band 8 = Frequency 59, Gain 4, Q 6.
Band 9 = Frequency 50, Gain 2, Q 6.
Band 10 = Frequency 60, Gain 1, Q 7.

I take it I can add as much eq gain as I like as long as I watch the level meters for the input and output and make sure they stay below 0?

I've seen in multiple tutorials that you're not supposed to add more than +6dB. I guess it can be pretty hard on an amplifier.

Then why do we have the option to boost higher if we can't?
