I am stumped I know a close setting to shoot for is 75dbs. In the speaker calibration menu even if I set say the left front to max, I get nowhere near 75dbs. Same with the others I get to maybe 50dbs. Aggravating
Turn the volume up on the unit more before starting the calibration.
I did that but all that does when I exit is have the volume louder. If I have the volume to 40 when I start, I go into level calibration and even to max I get nowhere near 75dbs. If I turn the volume up while I am in level calibration to reach 75dbs and exit screen, the volume on the sherbourn is now at 80.

Go into the Sherbourn menu, select level calibration and I think you just need to pick, say left front. Adjust your volume on the processor up until you get the SPL meter to read about 75 dB on the left front and then switch over to center. See what the SPL meter dB level is for the center. If it is lower than 75 dB, then adjust it up on the plus side of the level calibration menu, if it is higher, then adjust it down on the negative side of the calibration menu. Get it to read 75 dB on the SPL meter. Keep going around to each of your channels until they all read 75 dB on the SPL meter. The sub can be leveled at 85 dB on the SPL meter (I think that is right?) Then get out of the menu and you will be watching whatever programming you selected and it will be loud because you probably don't listen to TV at 75 dB level. So turn down your volume to what you prefer, but from then on, your system will be level matched at 75 dB. You're done.
